Not a tight-wad(sworth) then. Do you all just go round in your undies or something?

I mean, I believe the energy companies will sort out climate change if it ever really becomes a serious threat (to their profits), but there are so many other things I'd rather do with £1300 (my gas bill is £200 a year). Despite the storm, my house is warm enough to have ice cream for breakfast

Tips for saving energy...

1. Turn off all heating in bedrooms. I've never had any sort of heating in my bedroom. At night when I'm under 3 inches or 6 inches of duvet I'm quite warm enough. On the coldest nights, I wear a sort of tie on wooly hat.

There's no condensation if you take care not to leave saucepans boiling: turn them down to "simmer". And don't dry clothes indoors without opening windows a bit in the room they're being dryed in.

2. Forget about baths and showers: have a strip wash. Plus the only bits you really need to wash are the smelly bits. There's no need to wash the bulk of your chest, back, arms, legs etc.

Yours, Holier and more Spartan than thou.

Tariffs -
Low users take a low daily standing charge and high kw unit rate.
High users take a high daily standing charge and a low kw unit rate.

At some annual usage point is where the benefit low users tariff falls off and also where high users are getting the best price for high users. As usage increases further, the daily standing charge becomes less relevant and the top higher user is paying more than the medium higher user. More analysis would be beneficial.

Just what are you running there?

JH - a cannabis farm?

Lola, if that was his electricity bill, the police would probably already be knocking on his door to check just that.

That UK average figure is not very useful. For example Everyone in a semi detached or detached is above average because flats keep the average down. On the other hand new boilers can reduce bills by 22%. Upgrading from 70% to 90% efficiency.
