What Were They Doing III?

The continuing energy use saga... Following my previous report we now have another bill from the utility and more data than last time. At the moment we are in rather a lot of credit with the power company - though they have at least knocked £100 off the monthly direct-debit payment - even so we'll still be a long way in credit in the spring.

Our energy use as a percentage of the previous owner's.
In Summary, a 54% overall energy reduction, made up of a 77% electricity and a 28% gas reduction.

In no way is it a strict comparison, in fact the stupid gas changes are probably proof that the month to month figures are not a true picture. However the aggregate picture is probably fair, on the power companies annal figures it's an estimated 6.5 tonnes CO2 reduction on last year if we continue at our current energy use rate for the year.
