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.

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.

bumpkin, no it's not there anymore, FE has removed it as well as the spam from UKfella. The link he gave went through another site (that pays him commission when you click on link) before taking you to the correct website.

You do need to check your cookies in your browser and remove any for 'webgain.com' as it will track you and target you with popup adverts. Also to be safe look in your browser history and remove any entries for 'track.webgain.com'

Always best to check any links point directly to the correct website before you click on them. If you hover mouse pointer over a link it should show you where it's going.
