What to do in the Event of a Power Cut

by denergi admin
 
  Though power cuts are not a common occurrence they are not unheard of either and so it is important to be aware of what to do in the event of one. The first step should always be to check the trip switch which can be found in your fuse box (if you don’t know where this is it is vitally important to locate it and make yourself familiar with it now incase of an emergency). The trip switch only trips when there is a problem with the wiring of the internal circuit and not the incoming supply. You can test this by following these steps: Make sure the Trip switch is in the ‘On’ position Press the ‘push to test’ button If this doesn’t trip the switch then there is no incoming supply of electricity If the switch does trip then it is either because of a faulty appliance, a light may have gone or there is an issue with the internal wiring.   Once you have confirmed that it is not an internal fault you need to check to see if other buildings in the area have been affected as this will be one of the questions you are asked when you contact your Distribution Network Operator. Finally, once you have established whether it is an issue with your supply or a localised problem you must contact your Distribution Network Operator. The country is broken up into LDZs (Local Distribution Zones) and each one is maintained by a different Distribution Network Operator. To find out which company you need to contact and the relevant telephone number please follow this link. Important things to help you prepare for, and get through, a power cut: Always make sure you have candles or torches in an obvious and easy to reach place, make sure any lit candles are placed in a safe place and are not left unattended Leave at least one light switch turned on so that you know when the power has returned If possible keep everyone in one room and wrap up warm if it’s winter As far as possible unplug electrical appliances Once power has returned make sure that any food in freezers has not thawed   It is always wise to be prepared for these circumstances and to be aware of the location of your fuse box and how it works. These simple steps will help you to deal with a power cut efficiently and hopefully minimise the length of time you are without power.

Radical Changes to Domestic Energy Tariffs

by denergi admin
 
  In a recent statement made by Prime Minister David Cameron the Government have made clear their support for the proposed changes prepared by Ofgem concerning the domestic energy market. Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Even in these tough times when we’re having to take the difficult decisions needed to fix our economy, we’re doing everything we can to help hardworking people and families. That’s why I made a personal commitment to help get energy bills down – and I’m delighted that Ofgem are taking that forward. The package announced today is a huge step towards energy bills that are more fair for everyone. This is about putting people before profits. It’s about pensioners being better able to heat their homes in winter, and families better able to cope when the bills arrive. “Our aim is that consumers will get the best possible energy tariff – no tricks, no loopholes – and we will use the powers we gained in the Energy Bill earlier this month to make sure this happens. The Bill will support this package, and make sure that all energy customers are put on their supplier’s lowest variable rate unless they choose otherwise.” The plans by Ofgem aim to introduce the following, amongst other plans, to the domestic consumers: “Four “core” tariffs to cut the baffling array of tariffs currently on the market. That will actually mean four tariffs per fuel type (electricity and gas), which would apply to each payment type.” Consumers on ‘Dead’ tariffs will be moved onto one of the new tariffs unless the customer requests otherwise or their current tariff is providing them with “value for money” “All tariffs have a standing charge and unit rate”   In addition to the above points these plans will also safeguard consumers in fixed contracts from changes to tariffs mid contract as well as preventing them from being “rolled-over” should they fail to hand in a notice of termination for their current contract. Ofgem is also keen to rebuild the trust in energy suppliers by encouraging suppliers to actively help their customers to find the best possible tariff for their usage. This will include personalised consumption estimates to make finding cheaper tariffs easier as well as simplifying any information suppliers provide to customers. Ofgem and the Government are now approaching the final stages of statutory consultation that will hopefully lead to them implementing these ground breaking changes to the domestic energy market. They are optmistic that the consultation period, which ends in March, will conclude positively and enable a smooth execution of the suggested changes that will then come into effect in the summer.
