The cost of electric living

As I am mystified as to how my electric bill is so high, thanks to @nick_tweeets who tweeted the following info out today:

With the new 52p/kWh electric cap this is what stuff will roughly cost:

2 kWh fan heater / electric heater = £1.04/hour
3 kWh immersion heater = £1.56/hour

5w LED light bulb = 0.26p/hour
40w electric blanket = 2p/hour
60w light bulb – 3.12p/hour

8KG Washing machine (A rating) = 26p/cycle
8KG Washing machine (D rating) = 55p/cycle
Tumble Dryer – Heat Pump – A rating = £1.13/cycle
Tumble Dryer – Condenser – C rating = £2.33/cycle

Oven = 52p/hour
Electric hob halogen per ring = 85p/hour
Electric hob induction per ring = £1/hour (surprising?)
