TIDE: Take control of your energy bills the smart way

A time-of-use tariff for people who want to take back control and consume electricity when prices are at their lowest.

Find out more below

To truly turn the tide on climate change we need to be smart and shift our demand patterns to consume electricity at off peak times - not only is it the most sustainable way to lower your energy bills, but by levelling out demand, it reduces the amount of generation capacity we need to build as a nation.

And of course, it's all renewable electricity (and 100% green gas if you need it).

3 steps to taking control

When you use your Smart Meter with our TIDE Tariff, you will have access to our lowest electricity rates from midnight to 7am every single night. And if you can reduce your consumption at peak times between 4pm and 8pm on weekdays then you could lower your energy bills still further.

1. Sign up and we'll install a free 'next generation' Smart Meter in your home (if you don't already have one).

How does a tariff like TIDE benefit the environment?

TIDE uses 100% renewable electricity and the UK’s only 100% green gas. You can find out more about how our energy is generated here.

But just choosing 100% green energy is not enough. We also need to look at when we consume energy.

The UK’s national grid draws electricity from a broad range of energy supplies to cope with the country’s day-to-day demands. There are some pinch points during the day when demand can outstrip normal supply. When this happens, gas or diesel-powered plants fire up to meet the demand. This adds dramatically to the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions.

By making simple changes to how and when we use our energy, we can flatten out the peaks and help to ensure that our renewable generation is able to meet as much of the UK’s demand for energy as possible.
