...surprise surprise! ...from 1st of August 2011. 'Important information about your energy prices' from ..Scottish Power - 'The Energy People'. 'My energy use for last year was 2027kwh (previous 12 months).' 'My estimated charge for same usage (next 12 months) is 381.82 pounds.' What are your electricty bills for a year. ( don't include gas bills) It's about a pound a day for me.

You cannot just look at electricity usage on it's own.

You may only use electricity for house lights, and gas/oil for your heating, whereas I might have total electric central heating with no gas or oil bills. You would then have a tiny electric bill, I would have an enormous one - how could that have any meaningful comparison?

Combined gas & electric was about £150/quarter. Most recent bill was £170 for April May June. Sorry can't separate as the bills are at home and this is from memory.

£150 a month combined but are just about to get 12 solar panels fitted, for free, to a 20 metre south facing roof. This will turn the DC electricity to AC and will cut down our energy bills. :-)

To all responders:- I think the cost per day gives you a better idea of your daily energy costs. What you use is what you pay.

Dick Tattor - let us know how you get on with your solar panels. I would like to install some panels on my verandah which is south-west facing.

But figures given in isolation are meaningless - one person may have a one-room flat, another a 5-bed detached house and so their energy use will be totally different, also there may be six people living in one and a lone tenant in the other.

There are so many imponderables to be able to sensibly compare bald electric figures.
