Credit crlending crisis
Even though all power utilities do their best to ensure that your power and natural gas bill ings are as accurate as possible, errors do occur. Maybe you're too much payer for your power due to an imprecise metering, or you're not payin' enough - which could mean you're in power shortages.
Helping you to read and comprehend your power bill helps you to identify and correct mistakes. We have done our best to make your natural Gas and Power bill as simple as possible. It is part of our quest to make our energies easier, more fair and more translucent. These guidelines will take you through an OVO invoice as a model of a UK utility bill, but in reality most utility invoices should contain the same detail - but not necessarily in the same order.
This will explain what we think your natural gas and power will be costing during the year of your OVO agreement - this is called "your estimated costs". It is a set of information that informs you about where you can get information independently about your legal status as an electric utility user and how you can reduce your utility bill.
On this page you can see what you have been billed for since your last electricity bill. This is the amount that was transferred from your last invoice - this can be a credit or debit amount. The CR (credit) means that you pay for more power than you actually use, while the DR (debit) means that you debt because you didn't pay enough.
Costs for the natural gas that you have used and the power that you have used. Please submit your counter values! Here are listed all fuel and fuel we use to supply your power. When you are on our more environmentally friendly roadmap, you may be surprised that the above lists seem to show that you only get a percent of your power from renewables instead of 100%.
We cannot isolate renewables from other resources - once they flow through the network, they are all blended. If you are, however, a more environmentally friendly client, we ensure that for every power device you purchase from us, we will purchase one from a 100% sustainable one.
The amount of power you draw from the domestic network is therefore the same as the amount of power we inject into the domestic network on your account from renewables. This field contains your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN), which is displayed in the following line.
In this way it is confirmed that the electric bill is actually valid for your adress. They should see the same number in invoices from your former power supply companies and from any prospective power supply company that you could change to. At the top of the S-number field the upper half shows the section category, the counter timer number and the line leakage number.
Most likely very useful for measurement technicians, but not much help in helping you understand your power bill. Counter series number: This is the counter series number:: It is the number of your electric power counter and should also be indicated on the counter itself, either on a label imprinted or etched. Counter readings: Here you can see which counter you have, e.g. "Anytime" or "Economy 10".
Client Readings" are the counts you have provided us with, while "Estimated Readings" are our computation of what you may have used since your last readings, using averages. When your utility company transmits counter reader to verify your counters, their values are "current". A number of power utilities just highlight the C, D or A values. Cost £/kWh:
That is the amount you are paying for each kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity you use. Covering the costs of supplying your home with electrical goods, this is your part of the costs of the pipelines that carry natural gases and electrical current. The bulk of this section should be clear, or the same as the current reference we discussed above, but here are a few other points:
Measuring point reference number (MPRN): It is the same as the price of your power MPAN and certifies that the bill is actually valid for your adress. Measuring instruments that are used in the charging time: Direct Debit allows you to pay directly from your current banking accounts on a recurring basis, using an estimation of how much power we believe you will consume in the next few month.
By sending us your meters every month, we can get a much better idea and make sure that your electricity bill is correct. Select a smartmeter under your payment method PAYG.
