My latest bill from EDF states my current rate is 27.41p kwh, with standing charge at 47.58p day
In bold letters on my bill it says I can save £83.97 by switching to their 1yrFeb25v2 tarif, which is 29.59kwh & 49.45 a day standing charge. with new price can of 29p from January 1st 2024 I cannot see how paying more per kwh with a higher standing charge will save me money. Yet if I had just looked the headline figure and not looked at the detail I could easily have been caught out.
