We just received our first bill from SW Energy regarding hot water and heating. The problems start with the abusive price of the kWh unit, which is 3x more expensive than in other energy companies.
We live in a 1 Bedroom flat and the heating has never been turned on since we moved into the flat. How is it possible to pay double for hot water than we pay every month for electricity since the gas was only used in the shower and for a few minutes at night to do the dishes?
It is clear that this is one way for these companies to increase their profits.
I would like to know if there are any other residents who are also bothered by this abuse and would like to take some action.
Just to be clear, we are paying 18 pounds monthly on electricity (washing machine, oven, hob, lights, appliances, electronics) and 30 pounds a month just to have hot water in the shower and in the taps.
