Have you got a smart meter? That will definitely be the problem the wifi thay use is close to microwaves ( damages healthy cells in your body) and thing with smart meter thay could change your rate instantly without you knowing through peek hours and I work away a lot and my usage is almost the same if I'm here or not ??? That's not right

If you're away and you don't change your thermostat etc then it'll be the same yes. I adjust mine when I'm out and my usage drops.

They can't change your charges without telling you first. Even without a smart Meter your charges could be changed without your knowledge if they so wanted. However, I stand by my first point, they don't and won't change without telling you first.

As for microwaves...Your Meter is putting out the same waves as a mobile. It only connects a few times a day, unlike your mobile which is always pinging the closest mast.

And when I go away I turn off every to minimize the fire risk and I've got a gas boiler so how's that going to effect my electricity usage and definitely not as much as me here doing a week worth of washing shouldn't be the same ??

Well something is using your energy, be it gas or electricity while you're away my friend.

Unless you've got a lodger you don't know about it must be some item you've not switched off.

As for homework.....I'm good. I'm well read on the issues you mention.
Why am I using more than my plan stated when I signed up? Ok I'm using slightly less than I was with my old company but still more than the plan I agreed to? Can anyone help please
