    The time isn't set by your supplier - it's set by your region, and may change with GMT/BST
    There was a thread on here asking a very similar question.

    The tariff was set up for those using night storage heaters, so it's not that stupid - not much electricity used at night, but not worth tunring power stations off, so offer it cheaply.
    Depending on your tariff you need to use at least 20%-60% of your electricity at night to make it cheaper - without storage heaters this can be very difficult.

    Hi markdeer2004,

    The times do depend on your region, as they will differ from area to area.

    If you can let me know your area I can let you know your times.

    SwanJon is right you do need to use enough energy on the night rate to make it benificial to have economy 7 prices.

  • While I oft bemoan Xmas being a retail festival. It's strange today many are bitter that shops are REDUCING prices, usually its the opposite

  • And leave people held hostage to high Xmas prices? Our tradition was Xmas discounts spread in Nov/Dec not on one day

  • John Lewis website is down - its price matching black friday deals. Maybe its a good day to buy cheap extra servers?
