I meant electrical losses rather than money.

There would be a lot of dead fish if there were electrical losses.

Is this your fishing strategy post brexit?

As for voltage drop, i’ve no idea of the technicalities but it must work or they wouldn’t be building more

I am currently on 11.8p so will be interesting to see what is available when that deal comes to an end in April. We are also heavily in credit, at least 2 months payment but with the most expensive time of year coming up we shall see if that reduces.

We also have our heating on most/all of the time but our boiler is set to how much heat the building usually loses and so keeps the heat constant. We never have hot radiators, they are warm at best but keeps the house at a constant 18-19 degrees.

Good grief. My wife would complain about that. We are thermo incompatible. She does not feel comfortable unless the ambient temperature is above 22 degrees. Your lowest temperature at 18 degrees is considered to be the minimum to keep old people alive in winter.

You can check out your new potential rate already on USwitch if you choose, so no need to wait.

That is very much a modern day issue the temperature at which we want hour houses. At 22 degrees outside we would usually all be thinking shorts and t-shirt.

Have had a look at the rates and they do seem to be rubbish. Wonder if better rates might become available closer to the day mine runs out. Currently looking at about a 12% increase in costs.

Got a letter this morning telling me that mine is decreasing by about 10%. Guess I was overpaying previously.

I see them as a long term investment, as it will probably take 10 years for them to pay for themselves. With pension annuity and interest rates being so crap these days I think they are a great investment, providing they keep working.

Not forgetting the Eco side of course.

Cheers let me know how you get on with the panels. Extremely interested.

I believe our solar experts are Stamford Triumph and the resident KGB "bodge" agent Elgin Eagle.

The Feed in Tariff runs out at the end of March so you haven't got much time. Expect to pay around £5k for an installation of 10-12 decent panels and a decent inverter (solar edge). There are some sharks out there so beware, I got an independent chap who also filled in some gaps in the brickwork connected to the roof which was handy.

In the end EON have decided on £86/month for the next year, I suspect it will go up to £100ish then.

We switched via the daily mail group purchase scheme they had and halved our gas and elec bills from £100 each to £100 for both a great £1200 saving per annum.

Their posts are inundated with people moaning about joining them and then putting their direct debits up and all the positive feedback is fake. That said, they all do it so how do you know who to trust.

Used to but LT contracts ended last year so selling capacity on spot markets. It is now debatable as to whether it is economic to keep it open.

Should be noted that the prices we pay for energy are favourable compared to other EU member states. And yes the main driver behind recent rises are the renewable subsidies however paying more for energy which better protects the planet should not be sniffed at

Community energy purchase schemes are great. Suppliers tender for the contract and want the volume so qill drive down the price.

All my business fuel accounts have had a compulsory ‘green tax’ added for some years now, whoever has been the supplier.

I’m not ‘right wing’ so who should I ‘blame’?
