What is the average energy bill?

Trying to calculate the average energy bill is somewhat tricky as there are many different elements that contribute to how much you pay for your gas and electricity, such as the region of the country you live in, how much energy you use and how you choose to pay for your energy.

Below is a table to show the average energy bill for customers on a ‘standard’ energy tariff. This applies to the majority of customers including those who have never switched, have recently moved house or who have automatically rolled off an alternative tariff which has now expired.
