Electricity rebate for O2 concentrators

Hi There,Bit of a hypothetical question given that we no longer have an o2 concentrator in the house since Cecilia passed away.But has anybody ever received the rebate you are supposed to get for the running costs of your machine.i believe there is a meter on the machine that records usage and that your oxygen provider should provide usage details to your energy provider who should then refund you the cost of its usage. It probably does not amount to a great deal of money but it is still your entitlement.Keep breathing cooler times are heading this way.

I don't use a static concentrator, only cylinders.

asked about this here in Spain but electric people said no chance. didn't think to ask o2 supplier. might give that a try. it does eat the pennies even tho we have the lower evening rate. the day rate is extortionate.

good luck with the Spanish supplier.Got a quote once for our Finca in Catalunya for electricity supply,80.000 euros! and we are 900 mtrs away from a Nuclear power station.I could have erected 10 poles and a step down transformer and tapped into the reactor.it would have been a lot cheaper.good luck with your supplier.xx

I'm on 4 litres per min/24 hours a day and get a regular quarterly rebate from Air Liquide of around £75 which helps towards my electric bill. All you need to do is to inform them of your electricity supplier and your oxygen company should take care of the rest.

Hi, I have a concentrator with a compressor on top to refill the cylinders. They both have a meter on them in a stupid place where it is very difficult read. I am with Dolby Vivisol, every month I read the meters and ring Dolby with the figures. They inform my electricity company and I get a rebate paid straight into my bank. Hope that's helpful to someone.
