Jersey Electricity's unit sales in its energy business were 3% higher in the three months to the end of June due primarily to temperatures in April being lower than both last year and the long-term average.

Unit sales for the month of July to date are marginally behind the level experienced in 2012. In the nine month period to 30 June, unit sales in its energy business were 6% higher due to a combination of temperatures being consistently below the seasonal norm and the corresponding period in the previous year being particularly mild.

Electricity revenues were 14% higher than in 2012 due to the higher volumes of electricity sold and a year-on-year rise in tariff levels.
