* Cost information is calculated using a single rate of 16.33p/kWh which is calculated from the geographical average of the EDF Energy Band A standard tariff prices, correct as at Nov ’09, and as such your electricity bill will differ from the display. If you have Band A and Band B rates you can set an average of the two. Please refer to the EcoManager Full User Guide for more details on how the cost is calculated and how to change the EcoManager settings to better reflect your tariff rates.

** The conversion factor used for the CO2 on the EcoManager controller unit is: 1 kWh = 0.537kg/CO2 (DEFRA 5-year Grid Rolling Average electricity emissions factor 2006).
