Hi Looking for advice. My EDP bills are up and down like a yo-yo. I have a 2 bed apartment. This year no-one has been in it since the end of October and the electricity is turned off at the main switch when vacant. The last four months bills for an empty apartment have amounted to 144.42euro. Is this normal/average? How is the standing charge worked out? I pay by direct debit. The bills generally vary between 20euro and 50euro with no particular pattern. I can't work it out.
Thanks
EH

Your bills are being estimated. Somewhere on the bill you will see readings and est or act - or similar meaning estimated or actual. You can phone in your reading or sign up online or in an app - or go to EDP shop with reading then they'll either refund, make you in credit or charge you more depending on result,

I had a big problem with fluctuating EDP bills last year. Culminating with being cut off when an unexpected €300+ bill cleared my Portuguese Bank Account, the apartment was empty from Oct to March but they had estimated the bills then taken it all in a big chunk!! With advice from this forum I went to the EDP and sorted a budget plan of sorts where I pay €50.00 per month with an annual adjustment made in April. Takes the uncertainty away when trying to manage finances from a distance.
