Time of Use Tariff

The Time of Use tariff is one that divides the day into three periods where energy can be cheaper or more expensive. From June 2021, the ones that have a variable price with time of use, will have three different periods: the peak period, where energy is the most expensive. The flat period, where energy is less expensive. And the valley period where energy is at its cheapest.

What is the Time of Use tariff?

The Time of Use tariff means keeping your eye on the clock and using electricity during the off-peak period to take advantage of the cheaper price.

    3. Valley period: The cheapest price.
  • Could I benefit from the Time of Use tariff?

    The Time of Use tariff will suit you if you are able to plan and concentrate at least 60% or 70% of your electricity usage during the Off-peak period. If you don’t mind scheduling the use of your main electrical appliances for during the off-peak time, then this is your best option!
