    It is only pence, but really it is a matter of ethics; in my case it is £0.53/Annum
    Multiply that by the number of customers with imperial calibrated meters however,and you end up with a few grand of free cash.

    I also have the same a and b tariffs, but I shall be rid of them in a few days time (hopefully)

    Informative email from them this morning. I had already decided not to jump ship anyway as they are so much cheaper for me than anyone else but this gives me some reassurance that they are taking the feedback responsibly. I'm also pleased to note they won't charge if you cancel your DD when your account is in credit as this is a way of keeping on top of the excessive DDs they have put in place for a lot of people.

    I commenced a switch last night after they instructed me that my DD would be increasing to £103 a month from end of December despite me providing 2 years of monthly reading showing that my monthly usage was around £55 during the winter months (based on most recent E7E tariff).

    Not left with much option given they havent responded my my emails over the past 2 weeks highlighting that I would be switching and cancelling my DD if they werent prepared to abide by the previous agreed amounts of £83 (w) and £36 (s).

    I could get over the different amounts to cover winter and summer usage - thats fine, even the increase in variable rate as it was still cheap, but to impose nearly double the amount on my DD is too much so Ive now opted for the security of a fixed rate with another supplier

    Hate to say this, but in your example they're pretty much correct !

    1 inch is exactly 2.54mm. That gives a conversion ratio of 2.8316846592, which makes your consumption 212.37634944 cubic metres. Or 212.4 to four significant figures...

    Here in Engand it is 25.4

    I've enjoyed your posts, keep up the good work,

    Glad to see they've ditched their seasonal DDs. At least the company seem to be responding to customers unlike some of the others in the market. I think they are right in saying they can see seasonal DDs being the norm in the future.

    Website no longer exists?
    I've just tried to access the website at:
    www.economysevenenergy.co.uk (as per the last email that I received from them) and it takes me to a placeholder page. Have they gone under?

    Economy Energy gone bust
    They stopped trading yesterday. As a new poster I'm not allowed to put in a URL (even an MSE one). But search for "Economy Energy going bust" or similar in Google (or similar) and you'll see the news from 8th January 2019.

    Beware false E7 "quotations" from British Gas !

    A reminder to everyone trying to compare E7 tariffs: Beware deliberately false quotations if you get them directly from websites such as British Gas / Sainsburys, Places for People Energy and many others.

    Honest companies ask you to input your Night and Day readings separately; that's the only way that they can give an accurate quotation. But these dodgy companies cheat (as did Iresa, One Select etc) by asking only for the total consumption, and then choosing to make a completely arbitrary and unjustified assumption about the Night percentage, perhaps 55% but sometimes as absurdly high as 70%.

    The result is that they'll win your business by deception if your night usage is low. So don't believe their lies, do the sums yourself and see just how much more you'd end up paying.
