If were talking about campsite hook up..I agree with you, after all I like the fact that I can be comfortable with my pitch surroundings especially at night and that I'm not burning up my expensive Lpg...wild campers may have a different view
I wish I could find out how much large windturbines use when they are on one of their frequent 'lubrication cycles'. Taking electricity OUT of the national grid....or the 'pr spin' as it is known in the trade.....that kind of info may bring down the whole rotten edifice.
Not wishing to be pedantic but it is "kWh" NOT "kW/h".
If you think about this, it is the power (in kW) multiplied by the time (in hours).
So a 3kw fire used for 2h will convert 3 x 2 = 6 kWh and cost approx 90p [if it is 15p per Unit AND the thermostat is set very high so the fire is on continuously].
A 100W lamp (=0.1kW) can be used for 10h before converting 1 Unit [0.1 x 10 = 1].
A 250W TV (=0.25kW) will run for 4h for 1 Unit [0.25 x 4 = 1].
A 2 000W oven (=2kW) will cook for 1/2 hour [2 x 0.5 = 1] IF the thermostat does not switch it off (so probably a little longer), all for the sake of 15p.

PS Is electricity overpriced?
5x 100W lamps on from 4pm until 10pm will use ( 5 x 0.1 x 6 = 3Units)
1x 250W TV from 6pm to 10pm will use (0.25 x 4 = 1Unit)
2kW oven cooking dinner from 5pm to 6pm (2 x 1 = 2Units)
100W electric blanket from 10pm to 6am (0.1 x 8 = 0.8 Units)
3kW kettle for 20mins [several drinks] (3 x 0.33 = 1Unit)
