    Hi hanbond78,

    You are actually on the community board not talking to PP direct, if you need to speak to PP use Wattbot and include the phrase "message the team".

    You don't say if your usual bill has been estimated or actual, so it could be catching up.
    If your kitchen has been out of use have you had builders in? have they used the kettle a lot?

    Just a couple ideas, please give more details and the community maybe able to help more.

    Hello there
    Whenever you're concerned with a bill youve had the very first thing you should do is check the readings that have been used as @X Driver says. If theyve been estimated and they're higher than what the meter is currently reading then ask Wattbot to get in touch with one of the team to have it recalculated. If it's not much different than the estimate then it'll work itself out next time if you give a meter reading in time for the bill to be produced.
