Check your tariff


You’d be surprised at the amount of households who have no idea what kind of electricity plan they’re on with their service provider. It sounds like a no-brainer but you should always check to see how you’re being charged for the energy that you use.

Did you know that some tariffs actually lower the price of your electricity consumption after a certain time in the evening? Or on some tariffs, using electricity is much cheaper in the morning?

It’s always worth getting in touch with your service provider and having a chat about your options. For example, a tariff that has cheaper energy in the morning isn’t much use to you if you work all day and do most of your washing/drying in the evening hours.

And likewise, a lower tariff at night isn’t much good if you tend to work late or work nights.

Do a little bit of investigation, figure out the times during the day when you’re likely to use the most energy and have a talk about your options with your service provider.
