Balance as at 01/09/23 = £115,000.00
Balance as at 31/12/23 = £112,000.00SOA CALCULATOR (for DFW newbies): SOA Calculatorshe/her0 
Assuming your estimate of 7164 kWh is realistic, then
Total night usage = 7164 * 0.74 = 5301
Total day usage = 7164  5301 = 1863
Total standing charge = 365 * 0.5171 = 188.74
Total night cost = 0.2036 * 5301 = 1079.28
Total day cost = 0.3874 * 1863 = 721.73
Overall total = 1989.75
Month cost = 1989.75 / 12 = 165.81
What are your current rates?

Total night cost = 5301 * 0.1482 = 785.61
Total day cost = 1863 * 0.4275 = 796.43
Daily Standing charge = 365 * .5274 = 192.51
Overall total = 1774.51
Monthly cost = 147.87
You would be £17.94 better off a month. This, of course, would change negatively if you day usage increased.1
