    I think I know why some people are confused. Its the way I was explaining it.

    The reason I compare year on year is because of the fallacy of comparing January consumption with say June consumption - one will almost certainly higher than the other.

    For June 2018-Aprilish 2019 the usage was typically the same as June 2018-April 2018

    In April/May our bill usually comes down about 50 quid a month - and it didn't this year which is why I looked into it.

    April-June our usage is consistently 400kW'ish more than April-June last year and is running almost the same as it was in January!

    The grey values were pre-hottub

    The blue are two periods we were on holiday

    The red values are what I'm concerned about (June is a projection based on having used 490kW by the 15th)

    Still a little confused when you say "April -June" do you mean that in April and May and June ie every month your consumption in 400 kwh more than it was in the same months last year ?
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Yes - but the previous months were consistent with the previous year,

    no I cannot help, but you should monitor what is on! we saved 15% on our electric sue by installing LED lighting around our house.

    Why did your consumption decrease so much between September 2016 and September 2018 ?
