    Re: Electricity & Gas costs

    In some areas here water is included in your council rates and you are only charged extra for excess use of your allowance. While water costs have risen they are still not really a big issue. Mine has gone from between $20-$30 to between $60-$70 per quarter so it is not a huge outlay over a 3 month period. But, the point is that we have plenty of water now, so the price should be reduced.

    If I remember correctly you get charged extra in Scotland too if you use an excessive amount of water.

    Elda,
    I've never heard of extra water charges in Scotland. I don't know how the water board could figure that out because we don't have any water meters.

    My memory may be faulty Sandy but I did think I'd heard about excess water charges in Scotland. Specifically a girl I worked with who was building a new house in ??????? There we go, I can't remember the name of the place but it was near Cumbernauld and is actually now a part of Cumbernauld.

    Elda,
    That may have been a mains connection fee as it was a new house.

    If she was building the house herself then it probably was a connection charge.
