What is Economy 7?

( ratingratings)

Economy 7 is an electricity tariff with different pricing structures according to the time of day.
The energy you use at night costs less per kWh than energy used at other times. The cheaper night time tariff usually runs from about 1am to 8am - although this can vary, depending where you live.
