    Using a Electricity Bill Calculator 12th Feb 19 at 12:50 PM
    Hello I'm with solarplicity and my bill calculation is different to SC calculation. I also used electricitybillcalculator.com. Can anyone tell me if the EBC website is precise when calculating? Breakdown Units used 114 - Price per unit 0.1244 Amount of days 53 - Daily standing charge 0.1113 VAT @ 5%: 1.00 Total 21.08 When i did it in my head i made it 21.09. Yet SC calculation is 22.53 Can anyone tell me which total they think is right? Thanks

    Maybe post a copy of your bill and we can take a look at it for you.

    I calculated 21.084525 from your values but did no rounding at any point in the calculation. 1p is probably a rounding issue at some stage in the working out.
    How SC got 22 and change, I have no idea.

    Thanks for replies.

    Cor, that's cheap!
    I'm an old miser, one bar only policy!
    I calculated 21.084525
    As you have calculated 21.084 also, it seems that i may have been overcharged. Since being with SC my bills have seemed under and and over. Yet if you email them to query a bill you never get a reply.

    Thanks again
