Flexible pricing can lower electricity costs for some households but it will not be the right choice for everyone.
Flexible pricing may lower electricity costs for households that use most of their electricity during the off-peak and shoulder periods and/or are able to shift their usage to these off-peak times.
You should review the flexible pricing rates, your energy usage patterns and your ability to change those patterns and carefully consider whether flexible pricing will be beneficial for you before changing.
To view your current energy usage and track ongoing usage, take a look at My Account. This allows customers with a smart meter to monitor their energy usage and charges throughout the day.
Visit the ‘Usage’ tab to view your daily usage and see when you use most of your energy*.

*The graphs displayed in My Account should be used as a guide only as they show your usage within periods of time during the day that do not align with flexible pricing tariffs.
Flexible pricing will provide you with more choice and provides an incentive to use power at times when there is less demand for electricity, which may reduce peak demand and reduce the need for infrastructure upgrades.
