Residents in a London borough might be inclined to switch energy tariffs after it emerged that some are being charged twice for their energy usage.
The Lewisham & Greenwich News Shopper reported that people living in a Southern Housing property in Woolwich's Royal Arsenal have to pay £1.29 a day for using any amount of cheap electricity.
This adds up to around £40 a month for each of the 300 residents, the newspaper stated.
Southern Housing has blamed energy supplier Scottish and Southern Energy for the charge, which it said came as part of an arrangement between the developer of the property and the energy company.
"We therefore are unable to influence the duration of the contract or the tariff set by Scottish and Southern Energy," said a spokesman for the housing organisation.
"We are however aware of the residents' concerns and have met with representatives from both the resident group and Scottish and Southern Energy to understand the issues raised. These are currently receiving attention."
