Making the most of off-peak power
As the price of electricity in Qld, and across the country, continues to rise it is very important to maximise your opportunities to connect appliances to off-peak tariffs were ever possible. Off-peak refers to lower, discounted electricity prices during specific times of the day or night. Off-peak times are generally when residential homes and businesses use less electricity. These times will vary depending on your location and meter type but typically are in the evenings and throughout the night.
What time is off-peak electricity?
In most cases the times you can access off-peak electricity is between 10 pm - 7 am for Super Economy or Tariff 31 and before 4 pm and after 8 pm for Economy Tariff 33 for homes across the Gold Coast.
These times are set by Energex the electricity supplier in South East Queensland, your electricity retailer may, however, adjust these times. Retailers sometimes use different terms to refer to off-peak power, it can be called ‘time-of-use tariff’ or ‘shoulder usage’.
What can I connect to off-peak tariffs?
Pool pumps, air conditioning systems, and electric hot water systems are the three most common items that can be connected to off-peak tariffs. You can potentially save you hundreds of dollars each year connecting to an economy rate.
