Ours is built into the annual site fees you only pay if you use more than 200 in the year.

I know Zumba - Flix looked it up on your park's website and it now says that you don't get any units of electricity included in your site fees - that is disgraceful. They surely must be making a profit on it?

Have you had a bill through - if so what did you pay?

I'd query 30p they may only mark it up by a legal percentage and I would be very interested to see where they are buying it from at that price. Perhaps you could ask and suggest they change supplier.

Yep, we got a bill for it, we paid 45.60, but it didn't say how many units, just electric outstanding 2012. I think they started that this year, plus a goodly profit for them?. It would seem so, considering that we were only there from August!!!!!.

But firtunately, we do have an electric meter reading from the sites office. I also checked it out too - they got it correct. Still no blasted idea what the original reading was, Pat threw the bugger away .......

Odd that a bill doesn't say how many units? Not a lot you can do about it now if Pat threw the reading away, but if you are paying 30p a unit, I would be keeping an eye on the meter next year.

We received our first gas and electricity bill this morning. It is only for the two months that we have had the van.

Units used 216 at 0.171 per unit 35.18 net 1.76 vat (5%) 36.94 Total

I am guessing from what I've read on here, we are paying quite a high unit price?
