Hi



Today Kibtek turned up to read the meters in our apartment block. They were going to remove the fuse from our neighbours meter, because he had used no electricity during the last month. He lives in the UK, pays his standing charges through his bank here, but they were still going to remove the fuse.



Has anyone else encountered this scenario for a holiday home?



Sue.

Our son has an apartment, which is only used as a holiday home. We took out his fuse to ensure that it was kept safe for when he is on holiday here.



Have never heard this where Kib-Tek remove fuses for lack of use. Maybe they are running short, or it is another excuse to charge people for a new one. Did they leave any paperwork, i.e. a receipt?

never heard of that one, hope he has no food in the freezer, our neighbours fuse was stolen and the freezer was stocked ready for his next visit ! he paid Kibtek for a new fuse over 12mths ago ! no sign of it yet (YARIN), he brought one over from the UK and takes it out now and makes sure the freezer is empty

Hi Piggy



We have not encountered this before and the meter reader left the fuse in on this occasion, as long as electricity will be used during the coming month!!



Everon - If his freezer had been on he'd have used electric, so in theory - no problem.



Keith - not on a site, just a snall apartment block in central Girne.



Our neighbour is obviously concerned that leaving electrical appliances connected when the apartment is empty can be a fire risk, items could be damaged following a power cut/surge and why should he have the additional expense?



Perhaps there is a shortage of fuses here. But more worrying is, if we take out the fuse as Piggy suggests and no electric is used next month, will Kibtek just cut the mains supply?



Any ideas folks,



Sue

I have been away for months without being cut off. I just take my fuse out by the meter. The fuses are 60/80 amp and can be obtained in the UK I'm told from previous discussion on this forum.

Electricity accounts still attract a standing charge of about 11 per month, even if you don't consume any units. If you don't pay anything for a while KibTek will eventually pull your fuse. Best to pay 100 into your account before you leave, if you aren't coming back for a while..

Is the meter in his name? Kibtek went to Arapkoy a few months ago and removed all fuses from homes where owners had not registered in their name although they were living there and paying their electric. A way of getting more money in the cofers.

Hi Scruffdog



Yes the meter is in his name.



TRNC Vaughan



The standing charge is paid by the Bank - so no arrears!
