It has drawn my attention to the outdated set-up whereby tyhe Bulgarian electricity supply market is carved up by three or four virtual monopolies operating in the west, central/north, and east/south. Not as bad as the UK when the system was a state monopoly, but these are fake competitors who are therefore able to charge pretty much what they like, and operate as they choose (subject to whatever their BG government contract says);
I am hopeful that the people and politicians will wake up to the need for real competition and controls, and that they will also then learn from the UK's mistakes in allowing the suppliers to use confusion marketing tactics, by offering hundreds of possible tariffs most of which have obscure actual costs to the consumer.
Someone somewhere must be able to sort this out (when the new government arrives of course!).

Our electric bills have increased to. :-( Many things are increasing in price. Our meter is read everyday and we have asked for our meter to be checked, they said it is fine. It doesnt help that if you are a company you pay more for your electric anyway. :-((

Our electricity is supplied by E-on, after changing to the 2 tariff system, the latest bill was a good deal cheaper.

So they are white as snow eh? No faulty meters, no overcharging, everyone who complained has had their consumption analysed, and they have even given 50 leva prizes to people who participated in their surveys. If this is all to be believed, then the reason for everyones bill hike was that the January billing period was a few days longer than December or February, and that people just used more electricity.
Mmmm.... ::

The mayor in our village is busy arguing the case for a very old lady who copped a bill for 400 leva in December..her property doesn't have a meter and the wires stop about 50 yards down the road! In any case, she was living in the city with her family during most of November and all of December. Something is very smelly here...EVN is threatening to cut her off if she doesn't pay up, regardless of the fact that she hasn't been connected for over five years.

Now that is a rip off. She has no electric and gets a bill If it was not so sad it would be laughable

Rip off for sure! I only found out about this today and then only because the Mayor came around with some translation work for my wife. This poor old soul is in her late eighties and doesn't understand or deserve this rubbish. Thankfully we have a Mayor with b*lls and he won't let the matter rest.
