Hi there Simon @Simon Howarth 

A starter question - are you switching to Pure Planet, or from Pure Planet?

Stephen

(If you are switching to Pure Planet, then before your switch if the issue is anything to do with your supplier, which I doubt, it will be your old supplier)

hi @Simon Howarth  and welcome to the community.

Assuming you are switching to PP,  your switch will be at the rates in the quote you accepted, if it’s fixed it’s fixed for a year, if variable then it will not change until there is a price change, and new variable customers have rates fixed for 2 months (I think?) so ignore the in home display.

I don’t work for PP.

Hi @Simon Howarth 

A further thought, if you are switching to Pure Planet, have you come to the end of a fixed rate contract with your present supplier. If you have it's more than likely that your rates have increased and your IHD has been reprogrammed accordingly

@Duppy good point, I should have read the original post properly, otoh I still don’t understand what the post means, if it refers to a supplier other than PP why post it in here and if it refers to PP then maybe @Simon Howarth is switching away, was on a variable tariff and was subjected to the last price increase. You need a crystal ball sometimes...(or two if male)

Hi @Simon Howarth 

Asking what may seem the ‘obvious question’ as we’re moving towards winter-time - are you using more electricity/gas than you were previously?

Why is this thread marked as solved?

I vote for more speculation.
