    Default N Power.....(Rant)

    Right i moved in to my new rented accomadation on 19th July, on the 22nd i rang up npower who deliver the electric here to send me a card so i could top up the leccy box in the cellar, but the problem is i have 2 of them, for some reason, not sure why like but.........

    The top one i think is the main leccy and the bottom one is for nighttime and heating...could be wrong but hey, im no electrician

    When i explained this i was told that a card would be sent out in the next few day, but was given a long digit number to get leccy from the local shop, all good? No!

    10 days later no card , so rings up and explains, so they say "we'll send out another", it will be with you in 7 days, also we can swop the meter for a key meter, but we need landlords permission, thats cool, so rings up landlord who agree's......

    Rings npower back up only to be told they can do it for some reason which they couldnt go into, the computer says no!
    So they send me out another card......



    10 days later, guess what?
    No card, so rings up again, only to be told that the account needs updating which takes 28 days, and a card will be sent then.....Ok i says an sits back to wait.....

    In the meantime i ring up to see whats happening with meter an get told that the meter i have can be changed but i have to go onto a key meter rather than a card mater, all good with me, but then they say sorry, we not planning to do yours for another 12-18 months



    28 days later see me on the phone to find out whats happening, by the way im going to the shop 1x per week to get £10 leccy with the number on a peice of paper,
    Speaks to some young lad who informs me that the card will be with me on 10th sept and all is good to go:

    11th sept an no card so rings up again.....

    To be told that they wont be sending out a card as the meter needs changing, which they can do on 29th sept, result you may think........


    Oh no!!


    Letter this morning, sorry we cant come to exchange meter on 29th so will cancle appointment

    So again rings up spoke to another bloke who tries his best to sort summat out, but the system wont allow him to change and book another appiontment as the system wont allow him to

    So they gonna ring me tomorrow to manually book an appointment to come change over the meter....





    why do i bother???


    Anyone got any ideas which wont land me up in front of the courthouse for tampering with electricty meters or slamming someones head into a wall???

    Thats the thing, ive rang up a few other providers who have said they cannot take over supply until the meters are changed to a single meter, so until then i "have" to stick with n-power

    You will probably get it once you move out. I avoid those types of meters as the rates are more as well. I had my night and day electric supplied by EDF energy.
