Electric Ireland just tried to sell us their Pay as You Go Service promising it was 4% cheaper. Had a quick look around online and see that they failed to mention it would also bring a new additional daily standing charge of 19 cents.
Did the maths. Over a year’s usage using €1300 as a measure (what we paid in 2013) rather than save us €52 euro it’d cost €17 more!!!
How can they get away with promising 4% savings yet charge 1% more? Not mentioning a new standing charge in the sales pitch seems a massive oversight. Is that lawful?
