Time to open up the fireplace I think. And burn all this wood I've been collecting.
Will put up some ex storage heater bricks, to stand a pot on. Cook dinner and heat water. (Think witches, bubbling cauldron,frogs etc)
Will still have the gas central heating, but gas usage should reduce, and if with Ebico (and others) No Standing Charge.

So the customer has to pay for a private company AGAIN. I am sick of being screwed by these multinationals and have already planned to have a wood burning stove with back boiler in, so that is the gas sorted. Now I will have to save for a wind turbine and solar panels.:(

It won't really be 'sorted', as you'll still need to pay a standing charge for the priviledge of having a gas pipe connected to your home. Even if you use no gas, you'll still have to pay the gas supplier. :mad:

I ran some numbers on an average energy bill of £1200 - energy companies make 0.05% profit (approx £60 per year).
