  • Leccy is more generally UK slang for electricity.

  • Slang, possibly Scottish, for "electric bill." As heard in the fantastic Belle & Sebastian song String Bean Jean:

    "The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
    And it's like your holidays whenever you go round
    And we always have a laugh and then we all get in the bath
    To save on the leccy bill
    Me & Jo & Phil...

    And when Jo was short of cash I had to give her some
    But I didn't really mind cause I was fit for once
    So she paid the leccy bill and got the shopping and she still had
    Some for the cinema
    So we all went out"
