    I'm busy checking what last 10 weekdays use is like, hopefully I've at least used a bit over that time slot.

    Just wondering, does everyone have the same, or does this change per customer/area......

    "The next Saving Session:

    Tomorrow for 1 hour between 17:00 - 18:00 GMT

    Earn 1800 OctoPoints - worth £2.25 - for every unit of power you cut down

    We've got an extra challenge for your first Session: cut down even more power to earn our Super Saver Bonus. The top 10% of Savers in this Session (i.e those who reduce the highest % of their normal power use) will each earn an extra 1,000 bonus OctoPoints – worth £1.25. "

    I've not received any notifications from Octopus, so thanks for posting it here.
  • I just had a worry "I hope my smart meter actually has the correct time on it". I have a Secure SMETS1, i pressed 0 and the time and date comes up. Worry over, it's correct :smile:

    An hour is not long enough. I don't use enough in an hour normally.

    No notification here either but I’ve just opted in. No point really as we typically use between 0.2 & 0.4 units in that hour.

    This must be a trial as the day ahead pricing for 17.00 to 18.00 hours is lower tomorrow than it was today https://www.nordpoolgroup.com/en/Market-data1/GB/Auction-prices/UK/Hourly/?view=table
