There are many washing machines and dishwashers on sale that only have a clod water connection. These devices have no option but to use electricity to produce hot water. The electricity consumed may have been generated from 4 units of gas, making a considerable contribution to carbon emissions.
If these devices had hot water connections they could have generated the same heat from only 1 unit of gas or benefited from renewable heat.
Gas is also 1/4 the price of electricity unit for unit reducing the end users costs.
