Hi, l received my last electric bill in December last year, which was paid automatically by DD 

In January, nothing, then in February they credited €10.39 to my bank account. At this point I thought the previous year's bills must have been estimated and I had been overcharged so was in credit 

However, no bill in March or April. I tried to set up an online account to see what was happening, but that didn't work. Went to their local office, again they couldn't help .

So, I emailed them and they fixed my login problem, but the online information did not explain the situation.

Now, they've sent me an email saying that there is a problem with their billing system. It tells me not to worry and they will let me pay by installments at no extra charge. I don't think this is good enough.

Thoughts on legal standing here?

If you are dissatisfied you need to follow the supplier’s complaints procedure.

There is enough in the world for everyone, but not enough for the greedy!

I understand your frustration regarding the confusing situation with your electric bill and lack of communication from the supplier. While I can't offer specific legal advice, I can provide some general information and considerations to help you assess your legal standing and options:

Potential Issues:

  • Unclear billing: The lack of bills and inconsistent information online make it difficult to understand your actual consumption and any outstanding charges.
  • Potential overcharging: You mentioned feeling overcharged in December based on estimated bills. This needs to be clarified.
  • Unilateral installment plan: While offering an installment plan without extra charges may seem convenient, it doesn't address the potential overcharging and lack of transparency.

Your Legal Standing:

  • Right to accurate bills: As a customer, you have the right to receive clear and accurate bills reflecting your actual consumption.
  • Fair treatment: The supplier is obligated to treat you fairly and address any concerns you raise.
  • Dispute resolution: Consumers often have avenues to resolve billing disputes through independent ombudsmen or regulatory bodies.


  • Gather evidence: Keep all emails, communications, and bill copies as proof of the situation.
  • Contact the supplier again: Request a detailed explanation of the billing issue, outlining the missing bills, credit, and potential overcharging. Ask for a revised bill reflecting your actual consumption.
  • Consider contacting an ombudsman or regulatory body: Check your local consumer protection resources or regulatory body for guidance and potential complaint procedures.
  • Seek legal advice: If you remain unsatisfied with the supplier's response and feel your rights have been violated, consider consulting a lawyer specializing in consumer rights.

Important Note: This information is intended for general guidance and does not constitute legal advice. For specific legal advice on your situation, please consult a qualified lawyer in your jurisdiction.

Remember, communication and perseverance are key. Don't hesitate to advocate for your rights and clear understanding of your billing situation.
