    Uswitch quoting incorrectly?

    Just been doing a comparison of gas/electricity and it would appear that Uswitch doesn't calculate the correct price.

    Could someone else on Npower try a quote and then try one on another comparison site? The difference seems to come from the fact that Uswitch calculate different usage figures from my payment figures.

    Can't quite work out which one is right and which one is wrong. Although I'd assume that Uswitch is the wrong one seeing as it's different to all the other comparison sites I've used.

    I phone Uswitch but they are 100% sure their site is accurate, even though it returns different results to every other site (including Npowers!).

    Thanks!

    To add, I think the problem comes from the fact that one site must be including the £105 bonus that Npower give and the others excluding it, but I can't figure out which way it should be done or the calculation to work out which way each site is working!

    With Uswitch:

    You are currently paying £300.00 a year for gas and £300.00 a year for electricity based on a consumption of 9664kWh for gas and 2943kWh for electricity with npower.

    With Energy Helpline:

    Current Electricity Usage: 3294kWh per year
    Current Gas Usage: 8731kWh per year



    Both using the same tariff and same usage figures, £25 a month for each.



    EDIT:

    Energyshop agrees with Energyhelpline:

    Annual consumption kWh 8731 3295

    I'm with Npower and they have just put my DD up for both by 17 quid a month grrr

    Get on a comparison site and switch then if it comes out cheaper!

    I never know if its accurate because i never know if i'm selecting the right option..lol

    There are so many tariffs,last time i rang up Npower said my Gas was standard but on Uswitch it doesnt just give a standard option so no idea what it comes under.
