Energy customers horrified to receive £80,000 bills after supplier Ovo takes over SSE for £500m

Horrified customers of the energy supplier Ovo have been left in shock since receiving bills of up to £80,000 – after the company took over SSE for £500million. 

Such high bills occurred because of data errors that led to drastically overinflated energy projections for certain households, said the supplier. 

One man was told he was paying £79,580.45 per hour for gas on his smart meter. 

Taking to Twitter, the customer, Andy Liggins, wrote: ‘I knew rates were going up but…’ and shared a photo of his meter.  

Meanwhile, one woman was told she owed £44,800 for two months’ supply of energy for her one-bedroom flat. 

Speaking to The Guardian, she said: ‘I’d been asked to send photos of my meters in August as Ovo believed there was an issue. 

‘I did so and my account went from £600 in credit to £19,000 in debt. Despite Ovo assuring me this was a mistake, the debt rose to over £44,000 in September.’
