    Thank you for the info it is all relevant and my landlord will not be happy to
    see he could owe me money, not that I can be bothered to ask him for it.

    The resale of gas and electricity: the Maximum Resale Price Provisions

    £17.86 unit price ?, the correct setting I believe should be 7.2 £13.89, should
    I inform him that I now have proof that my meter is set incorrectly, and request
    that he corrects it immediately ?

    Domestic usage

    The MRP provisions only apply to gas and electricity consumed for domestic purposes.


    The maximum amount landlords or “resellers” are permitted to charge for gas or electricity is the amount they have paid for it, plus VAT at the appropriate rate. If the existing energy supplier applies a standing charge this can be recovered on pro-rata basis according to the usage of all those supplied at a particular property or site.

    As far as i remember, the landlord cannot resell electric to you at a
    higher price than he paid for it.
    Others may quantify with the relevant information.
