Energy bills, where does it end?

Constant and often unjustified rises in energy costs effect us all. We are supposed to have monitory bodies to ensure fairness but they do nothing apart from drawing nice big salaries for themselves. My bill was around £2300 which to my mind was ridiculous in the first place now they are saying they will amend my direct debit to what equates to £2500 no explanation given.

Where In live in the country the choice is LPG, Oil, electricity, and Wood burner. for central heating/hot water.

I would say more people are moving to electric heating in my area because of its clean usage.

My choice is oil I pay first and I am in control of the usage.

Once the tank is half or near half empty its re-filled with 500 or 600 liters, the last fill was £382.00 for 600 Liters.

My overall cost for oil last year was £1092, three fill ups of 500 liters

Oil boiler service £150 per year.

Electricity £384 per year.

LPG gas Hob approximately £40 yearly.

Blimey. I thought we had big batteries all over the place that we just used to charge up. We live and learn.

Would the price come down if we had a sort of strike and never used the stuff for a couple of months?

Here are a couple of interesting sites to look at ?

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/hub/business-energy/energy/energy-production-and-consumption

On the overview tab then Final Consumption, shows total energy being Consumed over the recent years

The Changing Costs of Utility Prices in the UK

http://www.castlecover.co.uk/historic-home-utility-prices/

Select the Gas and Electricity tabs

Compare both charts and look at the usage trend v price over the recent years has a story to tell ?

Cheers HC

I can't understand why it is so high as I have a condensing boiler 4yrs old and most of my other stuff is fairly new and supposedly energy efficient even most of my lights are low energy. I put it down to laziness of those who don't pay the bills and can't be bothered to turn things off, my offspring.
