Can you tell me my day/night switching times for Economy 7?


Badge
To save energy I try and use the washing machine and dishwasher on my Economy 7 night tariff by the use of the inbuilt timers. The thing is that I assume the switchover occurs sometime around midnight and again at 7am in the morning. The Ovo Energy website says to check the actual times (which can vary) with your energy provider i.e. Ovo Energy. I can find no specific information on this online so would need to contact them. However because I manage my account online I don't think I am allowed to email them. Have tried before on another topic and never got a reply. Is there any easy way to get the info other than sitting by the meter and waiting for the click 😃

Hi Tiptreejam,

Thanks for posting this topic. It’s a great question you’ve raised, and another OVO Forum user has come up with a nifty solution. Check out stateofit’s topic on this here: https://forum.ovoenergy.com/all-about-energy-24/so-your-economy-7-meter-gives-you-off-peak-cheap-electricity-but-when-it-cheapest-42.

Post a comment on that topic to let us know your meter’s serial number (written on the meter itself), and I’ll get back to you to confirm when your peak and off peak times are.

Great forum teamwork here! :D

Tim
