everyone is different thats why I gave both examples of usage and said to do a comparison, even by where you live, as you said how you pay, on a prepay its even more of a nightmare, economy 7 as many of us don't have it makes it difficult to compare.. Comparisons should always be done using actual usage. As a comparison I tried to do a comparison on my usage using prepay but wasnt sure if it was a prepayment meter and the comparison site I have set up doesnt show economy 7 or at least not on our account. As a comparison I currently pay 11.340p per kWh against your 14.5, 17.850p per day for standing charge against your 28.9p. So if you werent on ecomomy 7 moving would save money. But factor in most people havent even changed their supplier in recent years, they are on variable tariffs and some sadly have never changed before, doing a comparison only take a few minutes and can save you a lot of money and as I said originally, could be saving a lot more than the WHD.
thanks a lot
You have to stick with the same supplier you're with now at least until you get the £140 credit and then you can switch. If you switch before then then you'd have to apply to your new supplier but then by then they 'might' have ran out of spaces so you'd lose out! My advice is to switch to 1 of the no exit fee deals your current supplier has just until you get the £140 and then switch!
I'm with EDF's BIue+Fixed Prepay May 2019 (E7) and I can say those rates seem a bit high to me that you've been quoted! I don't even quite spend/use £10 a week on electric in the summer months and then £15 in the winter months as I don't use Gas at all but then I am usually awake during the Economy 7 hours so will always be cheaper! For me EDF is 1 of the cheapest available at 14.5p during the day & 6.7p during the night with a 28.9p per day standing charge! Obviously if you pay when a bill arrives then it's cheaper but if you're pre payment then it's often always more expensive as not everybody can change to a pay monthly/quarterly meter for whatever reason! For me EDF is perfect and the £140 more than covers any kind of losses I may get during the year.
If you can’t budget then learn free with government funded bodies. You can’t blame others after you are out the education/parent systems, that’s all I meant, seek help not be a dependent idiot. I could easily apply to SSE and get, I won’t because someone who needs it won’t get it but they need to learn to budget with help and then can one day be like me, “I don’t need it because I learnt how to budget so I’ll leave it for someone in need of heat and education/training” (y)
