⁴ The Estimated Annual Bill (EAB) is an estimate of the average household’s cost for electricity and gas for a year and includes VAT and all energy-related charges such as the Standing Charge and PSO Levy for electricity and the Standing Charge and Carbon Tax for gas. It does not include non-energy related items such as energy credits for switching, loyalty points or non-cash offers. For electricity, the Estimated Annual bill is based on information such as if a customer is Urban or Rural, the type of meter and any discounts that the customer may have. For gas, the Estimated Annual Bill is based on information such as if the customer is classified as standard or large gas and any discounts that the customer may have. The Estimated Annual Bill is based on annual average consumption of 4,200kWh for electricity and 11,000kWh for gas. With regard to electricity, if the customer has a Day/Night meter or Night Storage Heating, then it is assumed that 50% of the 4,200kWh electricity consumption will take place at these rates. These figures are approved by the Commission for the Regulation of Utilities (CRU). Actual bill charges may vary depending on consumption. See our Estimated Annual Bill FAQ for more details.
