    Hi Fiona, it’s a good question. The only way to know for your individual case is to do the numbers I’m afraid.

    You need to work out your annual usage for peak units (kWh) and off-peak units (kWh). Then multiply by the unit prices p/kWh. Add on the standing charge and that’s your total bill (excluding VAT).

    It can be helpful to convert the standing charge into an annual amount. eg 20p/day = £73 per year.

    You can save money with E10, but it takes a little bit of working out. Good luck!

    Hi Mark- in your opinion is it better to pay a higher standing charge and Lower tariff or vice versa? I know this will depend on our usual but roughly? We have average usage in a small well insulated house, the heating is Air source. We are with SSE at present and looking to get E10.
