What are Average Unit Costs and Daily Charges?

With wholesale prices stable for the past few years, the average retail price has also remained largely unchanged. Direct unit charges today are similar to those from three years ago. Every contract established comprises elements of a cost per unit used and a daily standing charge. As the consumption rises the fixed charges increase, but unit costs reduce.

The graph below highlights the trends over the past few years. Note that the standing charges (SC) are climbing whilst unit costs/kWh are flat or slightly reducing. Several years ago the average SC was 21.96p whereas today it has risen to 23.11p per day. Unit rates are averaging 10.08p/kWh, which is a 13.9% increase from early 2011.
