Our smart tariff is a 'closed beta', which means we're testing it with a small number of members. We're not accepting more members onto this trial right now.
On this tariff, there are 2 different rates for electricity:
- Peak - the most expensive
- Off-peak - cheaper
These rates reflect the changing demand for electricity during the day. Demand is higher in the late afternoon and early evening than it is overnight. So on the smart tariff, it costs less to use electricity outside of peak hours. On our standard tariff, it costs the same no matter when you use it.
The prices for each rate vary by region.
The timings are based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT):
|Peak||4pm to 7pm weekdays|
12am to 4pm, 7pm to 11.59pm
During British Summer Time (BST), which is the last Sunday in March, to the last Sunday in October, the hours change to:
|Peak||5pm to 8pm weekdays|
12am to 5pm, 8pm to 11.59pm
