    Agile Octopus 21st Mar 19 at 12:06 PM
    Today is the first day of my using the Agile Octopus tariff for electricity. I signed up to this tariff very much as a matter of interest rather than from an expectation of saving a lot of money. We have got to make some effort to contain our usage from 4 PM to 7 PM. Our base load averages 330 Watts and we have solar.

    Does anyone here use this tariff?

    And you can do the same for their Go tariff too.

    13.3p from 03:30 to 23:30
    4.99p from 23:30 to 03:30

    I really think the use of API to tariffs can open up a gateway to a smarter home. Turning stuff on and off based on all kinds of metrics (Solar Generation, cheaper energy, empty/full batteries etc).
