    Energy Tariffs 11th Oct 17 at 11:05 AM
    If the government plans are successfully implemented :
    "The cost of the dual fuel tariff – for electricity and gas – would be about £907 a year based on Friday’s wholesale prices, compared with the £1,044 to £1,160 the big six suppliers are charging customers on the most commonly used deals"


    How can they say this ?
    "ABOUT" £907 pa - NOBODY I know - pays any more than £500 pa and I myself pay less than £300 pa dual fuel !!

    Lucky you. I am on the two cheapest deals available for gas and electricity (2500kWhs/year for electricity and 10000kWhs/year for gas) and I pay £685 per year. My consumption is well below the National average.

    We used 6,600kWh gas and 1,500kWh electricity in last 12 months and are paying £25 per month fixed for 18 months !!
    We also get the warm homes discount of £145 pa - so energy costs are negligible !!

    £907 will be the average. It can quite easily be done if you have more than 4 people in the house and/or you are not on your game with tariffs.
