I don't understand why people are getting annoyed a bill increase which a) is small b) will affect very few people c) Will primarily affect more wealthy people who own holiday homes. This will not affect people who are saving electricity, unless they are saving electricity by using none.
Spare me this bull about "wealthy people with holiday homes".
There's a stink of begrudgery off this thread. I'd say that those cheerleading this increase have big bills and thought it was "impossible" for someone to run a house on much less. It must be annoying to then discover that they were wrong and that they have paid out potentially thousands more over the years than less wasteful people.
Just got my bill, 108 units in 63 days. Average sized fridge freezer has been plugged in all that time and obviously I've been using other items as well. Yet according to "an ESB spokesman" in this article
|Two units per day would be consumed by, for example, a small fridge-freezer on all day|
