Electricity consumption

EDF have sent an email stating that I used 1.20 euros worth of electricity per day over the last year. Is this before fixed charges and VAT?
How does this compare with anyone else, svp?
Ticking over, just about.

Re: Electricity consumption

I would hazard a guess that it is before fixed charges and TVA as the correspondence appears to state that you used the equivalent of €1.20 of electricity per day and not that the amount of electricity used per day cost you €1.20. I might be splitting hairs here but hey, I'm not an EDF mind reader.
As to a comparison with others, apples and oranges I'm afraid.

Re: Electricity consumption

A 'tarif de base' 6kw supply, which I'd expect most to be using, will cost you €100 p/a which is €0.24 per day which leaves around €0.94 for the electricity itself which roughly translates to 6 kWh per day which I guess is doable for a careful single person household not using electricity for heating or cooking but your monthly or quarterly bill should give you a breakdown of what's what.

Well dave

Whilst sitting in front of your wood fire having not washed for several days you must be happy to have done so much welding!!

Seriously - that is high

Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

Re: Electricity consumption

Really? Im not very careful about consumption, and my sums make that to be 1.80 or so per day not including the service charges....I thought that not unreasonable.
