⁴ The Estimated Annual Bill (EAB) is an estimate of the average household’s cost for electricity for a year and includes VAT and all energy-related charges such as the Standing Charge and PSO Levy. It does not include non-energy related items such as energy credits for switching, loyalty points or non-cash offers. 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 and is calculated using average consumption of 4,200kWh. Note that 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 the respective Night or Night Storage Heating Unit rates. These figures are approved by the Commission for the Regulation of Utilities (CRU). See our Estimated Annual Bill FAQ for more details.
