    It varies by region and doesn't depend on the energy provider. This page has a map which will give an idea. Really though you need to confirm the switching times on the individual meter

    Oh it's this thread again ;-)

    It you have an old teleswitch device (are there any left), then it gets changed by radio singals and is pretty accutate. Settign can be looked up if you provide the SSC (but there are no offical ones).

    It you have a timeswitch there where as there are official settings that can be looked up if you provide a SSC (it is not by supplier but SSC). However the clock setting are ultimately up the the installer and they could have set anything. Also the clock can be hours out. (They also don't change for summer... usually).

    Note there are around 30 E7 timings so without an SSC who knows.

    You cannot rely on official times or whatever the suppliers have a guess at. Its up to the individual to have a close look at their meter and timeswitch and work it out for themselves..
    Radio Teleswitch and Eco 7 smart meters can be relied on to be more or less on the minute but all others, especially the older analogue meters with a circular 24 hr switch, the cheap 7 hr s can be anywhere in the 24 hrs and that includes the night rate starting at say, in the afternoon and coming off at 7 pm for instance.
    The suppliers do not seem overly concerned about this situation . Only Scottish Power are interested to know if the night rate is more than 3 hrs away from published times

    The peak and off peak times can be found on the last page of your bill under the FAQ section.
