    Energy Tariffs:

    The calculation of electricity/gas cost is quite simple. Comparison of the multitude of tariffs is not facillitated by the necessity to “dig out” the unit costs and standing charges for each tariff making comparisons very time consuming. That each area has different unit costs and standing charges for electricity generated and distributed nationally. That fixed price contracts for energy, are for different time periods further complicates the picture. Energy cost comparison sites give results based on potential savings compared to standard variable tariffs. The situation is so confusing that the potential savings illustrated are somewhat fictitious. The best comparison method is to take annual usage (say for electric 5000 KWH and gas 15000 KWH) and compile a table using the unit costs).
