A ‘decision paper’ supportingĀ  the introduction of Time of Use (TOU) tariffs for “domestic and small business electricity and gas customers”.

This should end well.

So we’re getting smart meters next: To save us money of course. Time of use tariffs. Cheaper in the middle of the night to do washing, etc and I’m sure you won’t get screwed putting the kettle on during Coronation Street. It will “empower consumers to select the best tariff for them”

But go to Page 8 “dynamic tariffs, where the cost of consumption can vary at short notice” And there’s a tender for a PR wonk for them: I wonder who’ll win the smart metering contract?
