The off-peak hours for 'Economy 7' 2 rate meters vary across the country, as well as with the type of meter you have and the time of year, for example British Summer Time (BST).
Some Economy 7 meters list the off-peak hours on or next to the meter itself.
If your meter doesn't display the off-peak hours, check your region from the following table. We use specific meter data to work out off-peak times for your meter, and the table is for guidance only.

British Summer Time
If your 2 rate meter is CLOCK: the internal clock will not change with British Summer Time. So remember to add 1 hour during the summer, and change it when the clocks go back.
