of 70 pounds for gas and 30 pounds for electric, simply because we want to go to another supplier.
I rang them up to get an explanation as to where that 100 pounds to pay was coming from, and apparently it is for leaving their fixed-price scheme.
What a rip off! When the prices went up sharply last year , we joined the scheme. Then prices went back down but ours didn't, and now we have to pay to leave!!!

I'm so fuming! I cannot recall them telling me they 'd charge 100 quids if we left the scheme before 2011. hmm

Did you sign a contract when you joined the scheme??

Don't pay. That sounds totally unnaceptable.
Make them justify it by law. bbb

Do you know what, I think you just have to suck it up.

I'll almost guarantee you that it was in the small print somewhere.

Also, in hindsight do you not think it was possibly not the best idea to join a fixed price scheme at that time? I certainly thought there was no way I was joining one because the prices were bound to come back down.

I do have every sympathy with you because it's completely shit when you get caught out like this but as I said, I doubt there's much you can do.
