Electricity

The standing charge is a fixed amount paid daily to the electricity supplier. It’s a little like a connection fee; you will then also pay for the electricity units that you actually use.

A high unit charge, also known as a normal charge, is for the operation of normal domestic appliances such as cookers, fridges, kettles etc., generally through the day.

A low unit charge is also referred to as off peak, and is for storage heating and hot water use during lower energy times, generally through the night.
