We have just received our electric bill for £402 per month (we pay by direct debit). The electric is on nearly 24 hours per day through winter, we do not have gas.
I went online and did a cheaper tariff check to see if I could get a better deal. I went onto the website of the company I am now with and typed in all our details, got the information and to double check I then rang the company and lo and behold, they have given me a new tariff until August 2014 for a price of £235 per month this takes into account our electric usage for the past year. I have saved £167 per month.
They say that it is the customers that have to check the tariffs themselves but there is a new law coming out where they have to inform us of a better tariff.
We also get a refund from the company that provide the Oxygen concentrator so that will be more money back for us.
So it is worth checking.
I also applied for the Warm Home discount scheme for people with a disability but found you have to be on income support, the only benefit we get is Attendance Allowance, which is not included.
We are at the moment sorting out getting our house cavity wall insulated and the loft insulation done free of charge so that should also help.
