Cost Graph Explanation

Cost Pie Chart

This chart shows the split between gas, electricity and other fuels. This helps the user to understand how much they spend on different energy sources. If only one energy source is active [e.g. Gas] then the pie chart will show the split between fixed and variable costs. Depending on the energy source you should expect to see approximately ten percent of your energy expenditure on fixed costs and ninety percent on variable costs.
Remember that reducing your energy usage will only reduce your variable costs.

Monthly Cost Bar Chart

This chart shows the monthly breakdown of your energy costs. Most businesses spend more during the winter months due to increased use of lighting and heating. Also some tariff types have higher unit charges during the winter months.
