I'm on PAYG Standard tariff (key meter) for my electric, and struggling to find out what the off-peak times are on my tariff.
I'm in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Thanks in advance,
@Clydesdale Most payg accounts do not have a night rate option. On credit accounts it's possible to register for a two rate tariff like economy 7 that gives cheaper electricity from about midnight to 7 am. This is mainly used by people with night storage heaters that warm up at night and give out heat in the day.
Thank you for the replies.
It all seems quite complex, looks like I'll need to phone Scottish Power.
My concern about knowing the correct off-peak times is due to my payment meter being blank, as are some others in my development. Not only can't I put any credit into my meter, I'm also unable to take any readings off it, therefore my concern about getting a nasty surprise xx months down the road. So at the momentI'm being uber cautious in what power I use, I've turned off my heating and hot water (I'm all electric) which is fine now that we're going into the summer.
I've not long moved in, but another resident said that their meter has also been blank since Feb 2020 ! They mentioned it happening ar the same time the power company were working at the sub-station nearby.
@Clydesdale Yes you need to ring 0800 027 0072 and report a faulty PAYG smart meter. Do not ignore this situation, it could easily lead to very big bills over time.
It is still doubtful that you have an economy 7 account, so you probably have a single rate tariff. You could apply to switch to a credit meter with an overnight cheap rate, but if you do not own your property you would have to ask the landlord for permission.
