A third of customers will get estimated bills this quarter.These bills will take into account energy used before the summer price rises and after, but they may not take into account the price rise.
This could result in a huge and possibly inaccurate catch-up bill down the line once the customer's meter is read, because the supplier will not know which units of energy were used before the price rise.
I had my meter read on Thursday and a Bill online by Saturday. (Informed by Email)They have used the reading to calculate usage from April and they owe me money!£45. New direct debit details have been calculated and will be used in future payments. I am with Npower.
