What makes an Economy 7 tariff unique?

Compared to most traditional electricity plans, an Economy 7 tariff will offer a different rate which will be dependent on your electricity usage time. These tariffs allow you to save money for electricity consumption during the night.

Economy 7 plans will make use of an alternative electricity meter type compared to most normal energy plans. Your electricity meter will display two separate readings on an economy 7 tariff. The first will be for during the day, and the second will be for night time use. This information will help you easily track and calculate your energy usage for both rates separately.

What hours does economy 7 run?

Under most plans, economy 7 hours will generally start around 11 pm to 1 am, and will continue until around 6 am to 8 am. Remember, these times will vary depending on who your energy supplier is and where you are located.

We recommend contacting your energy supplier to find out what is the start and finish time for your plan. Note: Daylight saving hours may affect these times.
