This is getting ridiculous (energy prices - Strictly NO referrals!)

I've just seen my first full month on the new tariffs bill. Previous bill was £126.45, this last bill is £165.33. Not as bad as I was expecting. Shell is still saying my direct debit should be £205 though, I have no idea where they're getting that number from. It's currently at £177 and based on last winters gas units, that'll still put me in credit by the end of the financial year.

Details for those interested.

Flat, 2 adults.

Shell Flexible 7
Elec: 28.408p kWh (standing 51.62p)
Gas: 7.476p kWh (standing 27.22p)

£/month isn't much use as a comparison when those on SVT might be paying double the unit rates of someone on a historic fixed price tariff.
so i looked
electric now - 29.24p (this is varies to what we are using)
Standing charge - 46.6p inc VAT daily

Gas - Now - 7.380p (this is varies to what we are using)
Standing charge 37.275 inc VAT daily

i understand it all now,lol

Keep in mind the suggestion is also Including the rise in a few months of around 20% as its looking at a full year's period. Also as your probably aware the energy company's are putting DD up more than they should be which they are getting in trouble for.

You're paying around the price cap for gas (more on the standing charge) and considerably less for electric. If you were paying price cap rates your monthly would be nearer £200 than £150.

People questioning why their monthly payments are being requested higher than current use, should consider that April/May isn’t typical use for all months of the year.

What's not typical about April/May compared to other months? If you're referring to gas usage because of central heating in winter, I already accounted for that.

I hadn't considered the 20% hike later, so I assume that's where my oversight was.

Only had smart meter 3 days.
Seem to be hitting 2-2.5 a day for electricity.

They couldn't fit a smart meter for the gas due to the weird meter box. But gas is less important.

So looking at 70-80 a month for electricity.

Rates
electricity - 21p unit. 24p standing
Gas - 5p unit. 25p standing
(ends August 2024)

About similar to mine, with the same sort of deal. God I hope the current prices go down before then...
