Our energy provider visited today to finish off a new meter box fitted by a sub contractor in October 2015. Engineers discovered that the cabling for the electric shower did not go through the meter box!! I imagine this occurred when the electrician wired our first electric shower some 20+ years ago.
Anyhow, we have been receiving unpaid for energy.
Engineers today fitted a temporary meter for prepayment... quote.. until any underpayment was sorted. Engineers took photos as evidence.
We knew nothing of this. £161 to be billed to us which is 8 units for a daily shower x 107 days since the sub contractor looked at it and didn't pick up on it. In reality the usage goes back a very long, dh feared £thousands.
They say we must remain on prepayment meter because of the offence. . I asked for Manager to get us back to ordinary meter once paid. Can't do this, we have offended, so prepayment meter stands. Dh is very upset in a quiet way and has a headache.
Power came back on.and Internet was not connected. Hours spent on this, spent hours o the phone with broadband and now told it will be 7 days for line check and repair.
Just to round it up...... the porch roof is leaking.
