Over the festive period, you will likely notice that your electrical bill is rising and the price you are being required to pay is considerably higher. Let’s discuss the main reasons why this could be the case.
Think about your home over Christmas, we have many more items that are using electricity in our homes that are not normally around. Christmas Tree Lights, for example, are not around all year round, they are only on during the Christmas period and will be using more electricity. This is the same concept for outdoor Christmas lights. People do not have outdoor lights on their homes all year round, these are most commonly used over the festive period.
Finally, the gifts we are being given at Christmas can play a part. More people are being gifted electronics that need charging or that they want to play with. This plays a huge part in the increased electricity bill.
