[Prop] Electricity: pledge to go green Jun. 26th, 2006 12:29 pm
"I will go to the hassle of switching to a renewable electricity supplier but only if 1,000 other people will too."

I may wait until my current supplier bother to start billing me before I think about that.

EDF finally sent me a gas bill on Friday, dated starting from a month before I moved in - 3 months after they realised I was an electricity customer.

Almost spectacular ineptitude. And I still don't think Lambeth have got me on the Council Tax, despite repeated reminders - but I think they're run by Crapita anyway.

*nods* I'm with EDF too, and since I moved in a month before you, I'd have expected them to have billed me by now. If they don't do so before the end of the month I'll call them, as I don't want any nasty surprises.

Council Tax definitely know I'm here, and are cheerfully gouging me for £125 a month.

I think Lambeth gave up on Crapita. At least, this time moving to Lambeth I got a council tax bill and electoral roll form within a week of moving in (I used the 'Hi! I'm moving to Lambeth!' form on their website).

EDF also sorted out me and the flat within a week, and only asked twice if I wanted their gas too. They are billing away merrily...

Note to self - get draughtproofing done during the summer. And get quotes for loft insulation.

I was thinking of switching to Ecotricity, but they only supply electricity, not gas. So I’m going to switch to Ebico instead and do carbon offsetting.

Been with RSPB Energy for years now and quite happy : )

Of course, the best way to do your bit to save the planet is not to use the stuff iin the first place (she said with the computer, electric cooker and stereo on).

npower have a green energy option, but we switched to British Gas due to the former's crap customer service. The latter unfortunately don't have a green energy option, but you can offset your CO2 generation.

Alas, I am not responsible for our energy accounts.
