STOMPer Allen was shocked to receive a utility bill in June that showed a two-fold increase in his household's consumption.
"I wonder how many of you have received a 'big' utility bill for June's charges, that came in almost the same time with the GST rebates notification.
"For mine, the consumption for all items (electricity, water and gas) have increased to an level of almost 100%!
"This is ridiculous as there are only two working adults in my house -- that is my wife and myself.
"Hence, we are only at home on weekday evenings or at night!
"I have called up Singapore Power on Monday but the customer service Officer basically just tried to find all reasons to justify the charges.
"In the end, I was asked to write-in or email. My precious 20 minutes had been wasted on the call.
"I had drafted an email to SP on the same day but till date, there's still no reply from them.
"And we are just to pay for whatever charges they put into the bill?"
