Wouldn’t surprise me, they have a talent for doing the wrong thing. I suspect any further price increases will be justified by the cost of installing meters and putting up posters reminding us that turning lights off and not heating your awning saves energy.If only!
I suspect it will be a reason to put prices up by keeping the pitch fees the same and then loading the leccy on top.
Having paid for CAMC Wi-Fi for the last 2 years l can confirm that it is patchy depending on the site & certainly not worth the money. Oh & don’t ring the helpline as the phrase chocolate fire guard springs to mind.I think the C&CC wi--fi is basically a hot spot service with limited coverage. It's also not avaiable over all the network.
In the last week we have stayed at C&CC Devizes, free WiFi that worked well enough to stream YouTube etc.
They dont give a sh1t about their public image, try talking to them at HQ level and they will ignore you or even lieIt's been overdue BUT
There will always be people who leave heaters on 24/7 and maybe they do at home as well so who am I to judge, just because I dont use as much electric as they do onsite
A campsite is an 'all inclusive' holiday as far as the technicalities go, once you pay your money then you can leave a tap running in your van, use as much electric as your ehu connection will let you or shower in the toilet block 24/7
The attitude of CMC is laughable when they say ehu is included but please dont use it I wonder what their attitude would be if I paid by cheque but asked them please dont cash it they need to rethink their public image
Not everyone has 9 million watts of solar and 12 lithium batteries (joke ) so they need ehu
I worry about the people who have special needs for ehu....medical equipment,etc...that metering might end their touring holidays for good
Electric costs are an issue, at home or on holiday, but clear options need to be available
Most campsites, and the entire touring leisure industry, are stuck in the 70s with their attitude to ehu.......will it change overnight or get any cheaper..not a chance......but it 'may' result in more choice for all of us in the end
OK people your not going to like this but at home we have a standing charge, I can run the house on solar and not draw a single watt from the network but I still have that standing charge for the Meter.
So if you are on a pitch with a meter you will pay for what you use but as it has a Meter you will pay a standing charge on that pitch even if you do not draw a single Watt so its unlikely costs will go down am I going to get flamed for posting this. You know im just playing devils advocate
If each pitch has a meter, the site could choose a standing charge per meterSurely it depends on whatever the commercial standing charge Presumably the site pay a single standing charge not one for each pitch? How they pass that on to customers is another story.
