    We can import cheap LNG from North America for $0.01 per kilowatt. We would have to build chilled storage tanks and could export to the UK.

    Also the fact that the UK could just buy directly from America and bypass Paddy.

    It's not the first time I've noticed this happen, by the way.
    Thanks for the tip-off - will submit reading at the end of Sept to stop that shenanigans.

    Comparing household gas bills accross Europe on a gross basis does not take account of our mild climate.
    nor does it allow for crappy insulation in Ireland!

    So can somebody tell me why we have an energy company that is, sponsoring a theatre owned by a NAMA boyo by our gas bills?

    How much is that sponsorship worth and what's in it for us? Why did the regulator not take this into account when it was deciding to raise our costs?
