Also not sure how "new" flat and 73000KWh match. Add to that that you would not replace new storage heaters after only a few years.
Also some of the figures you are mentioning in your opening post don't really match up. You are mentioning £30 for Air PurifierS, CPAP, and DehumifierS. From the plural used that would be at least 5 devices. Are they running 24/7 and what is the wattage? £30 sounds very low.
But even if it is only £30, how does that work with the £50 to £70 energy use you had in your old home? Add a SC of £12pm per month, which leaves only £8 to £28 per month for hot water. heating, fridge freezer, cooking, computer, router and washing, plus whatever other electric devices you have.
Either you got your numbers wrong, or there might be a surprise for your old home coming up. Did you already get a final bill for the home you have been evicted from?
If your not willing to change that then single rate is the way to go, You could also try begging SP to re-bill you as single rate, you may get lucky.
