Millions of energy customers hit by back-bills!

Posted on

As many as 2.1 million households across England and Wales could have been hit by large late bills in the last year because energy suppliers initially undercharged them.

Back-billing happens when customers have been undercharged for their energy for a period of time. It can be because a customer did not pay a bill, but often it is due to supplier mistakes like underestimating bills or not investigating a technical fault.

The average back-bill was for £206 – with 15 per cent of those who had been back-billed saying they were charged more than £250.  But people contacting the Citizens Advice service have reported much larger back-bills.
