Often when a business report a loss what they have made is less than what they projected and not an actual loss at all. Don't fall for the blag no business can operate after really losing millions

It was the regulator that examined the situation and allowed the ONE-OFF profits.

All the other years, the energy companies are doing it out of the kindness of their hearts and not making any money from us.

It's like when Starbucks tried to say they made a loss on every cup they sold in the UK.

Re: The energy crisis

I do not understand the reluctance of people towards Octopus agile and Octopus track. With a smart meter.

8am today: 3.51p leccy and 3.95p gas per kwh (Surrey)

It's probably the hassle of getting smart meters installed, if I had a smart meter I'd likely sign up if it saves me alot of money, currently I'm paying Octopus £90 a month.

Thats why.

People dont trust them, and the energy companies have made that worse with their apparent switching people to PAYG remotely.

Once lost, trust is hard to regain.

Re: The energy crisis

Quote:
Wasted wind power will add £40 to the average UK household's electricity bill in 2023, according to a think tank.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-67494082

Quote:
That figure could increase to £150 in 2026, Carbon Tracker has estimated.

When it is very windy, the grid cannot handle the extra power generated. Wind farms are paid to switch off and gas-powered stations are paid to fire up. The cost is passed on to consumers.
