Benefit from Economy 7 or not...

Ive seen something suggesting that if ~35% of your electricity use is on Economy 7 then it is worth retaining but if it is less, then better to go with a standard rate overall. Is this a recommendation that Bulb could advise on statements.

You could have saved £xx this month by using standard rate…

It would be useful to know as I know that during some months of the year I have far fewer appliances using the night rates.

Is this a recommendation that Bulb could advise on statements.

Once you have a smart meter, yes. If you allow half-hourly readings then Bulb will know your usage profile throughout the day and be able to calculate the equivalent Economy-7 bill. Old style meters, or even smart meters that you allow to be read only daily or monthly, provide only the cumulative usage and so it’s impossible to know how much was used at what time of day.

Great. Thanks :slight_smile:
