Consuming Issues: Are your energy bills too high and want to know what caused it? Listen here to Sarah Pennells
Your energy bills could be too high because the energy meter itself is faulty. New research shows that you could be charged up to £140 to get your meter tested. But some energy companies charge nothing at all. The website SavvyWoman.co.uk contacted eight of the major energy suppliers to find out what their costs and charges were and it found that while some suppliers charged nothing at all, others charged over £100. Sarah Pennells, founder and editor of SavvyWoman.co.uk, joined Sue Dougan in the studio.
