http://www.myutilitygenius.co.uk/ In this Whiteboard Friday Episode, Guy Thompson, our Product Director at MyUtilityGenius explains how electricity is delivered to your house and who you pay via your electricity bill --- Video Transcript "Good afternoon and welcome to MyUtilityGenius Whiteboard Fridays. My name is Guy Thompson, I am Product director, we thought the best way to start our Whiteboard Friday would be to provide you with some context and understanding of the industry you are getting involved in when you switch your gas and electricity and when you try to deal with the energy market. We are going to start with the electricity, hence "Part 1 Electricity" and we will start with simply the infrastructure of how it works because most people don't understand that... So we start with your house here, this is you, this is the generator. There are lots of different types of generation: capacity, coal, nuclear, gas... The key thing about this is that they are generating through turbines, it comes up to the National Grid. National Grid is a spine of transmission cables that run across the country, moving the electricity at around 400,000 volts. So this moves along the country, comes down to the local DNO which is the Distribution Network Operator who is the localised person. They set this down using transformers and substations. Ultimately, it comes out of your plug at 220 volts. So this is effectively the journey the electricity takes to get to your door. So you have: generators, transmission company which is the National Grid and you have these guys who are the DNOs, the Distribution Network Operators. You don't know any of these people, because you don't pay any of them... Where does the money go? Well, that's where the Big 6 and the other energy suppliers step into the frame. This is where your money is going. You are paying out on a monthly basis, Direct Debit, however it may be: you are paying out one of the Big 6. What they are doing: they are disbursing that money to all the people involved. They send it here, to the generators where they are buying on the wholesale market. Every time you hear about the wholesale market that everyone blames for anything, well it is this bit here. Some more of your money goes to the National Grid and some of it goes to the DNO. These 2 here, are dealt with by OFGEM. So OFGEM is regulating the cost here. So this cost is regulated, this is the trade market... You are paying these guys and they are paying somebody that everybody loves, the HMRC. They are paying things like Feed-in Tariffs, Renewable Obligations. These are effectively the subsidies areas that you are paying. The Big 6 are some of the biggest collectors of taxes in the UK. So when you get a bill, it is sent by these guys but these guys are nothing more than very large billing engines with 5 million or more customers, they have very strong credit facilities because they are buying electricity for you and you are not only paying them a month or 3 months after you have used it. They also have very sophisticated IT systems. But in a nutshell, out of all the money that is disbursed here, the average annual energy bill, which is £1,300, the suppliers are making between £40-£100 profit. That is effectively what you pay for in your electricity bill. Next we ll have a look at part 2, gas..." --- Connect with us Google+: https://plus.google.com/1131393767137...

ALBANYThe supply cost of electric doubled for National Grid customers from December to January and the rates were set to go even higher in February but Upstate New York customers will get a temporary reprieve. The utility announced Wednesday that it will freeze the electric supply rate from January to soften the blow of major price spikes. The price per kilowatt hour was set to increase by 20-30% in February but National Grid says it will hold off on charging customers that increase, instead likely collecting it a little at a time over the next six months. It was going to be even more of a shock (the price of electric) and we know that there are people out there that are having trouble paying their bills and they're expecting one thing and see another, says Patrick Stella, a spokesman for National Grid. Although National Grid really only controls the delivery side of the bill, the utility asked the Public Service Commission to soften the blow on the supply side of the bill. I know you've been reporting on it and our customers have certainly been calling us about it and as we've discussed, supply rates are something we don't really control but if we can somehow work with the Public Service Commission and mitigate these things, especially during these winter months when people are using a lot of electricity, Stella says. The February National Grid bills will show the higher supply cost but they will also show a credit on a line item labeled ESRM, that credit is temporary though. Eventually, we are going to have to collect those funds when temperatures are warmer, when people aren't struggling so much to pay their bills, Stella says. As CBS6 has been reporting, electric rates are sky-high right now across upstate New York. The states transportation system is dated, the demand is high and natural gas which is used in the production of electricity is also increasing in price. National Grid says it will take another look at how much electric it buys in advance verses riding the market to see if changes can or should be made but right now, customers are on the hook. From what we know, from the market and the information we're getting a lot of the spike in cost have been due to cold temperatures, high price of natural gas and generally that does happen this time of year, Stella says. The temporary credit is not available to customers who purchase their electric through an Energy Service Company (ESCO). National Grid says details of the pay-back plan will be included in Marchs bill once they are finalized.
National grid is warning its customers of a new scam out that claims the federal government will pay your utility bills if you sign up for a new program. According to the company, there's no such program.The scammers ask for your social security number and bank routing number then give you a fake account number to pay your bills. Customers have been contacted via phone calls, online and in-person by scammers who claim to be with National Grid. If you're contacted National Grid says you should notify the police immediately.
