Frequently asked questions:

What determines the electricity tariff?
Your consumption patterns determine the best tariff options for you.

What is the Double Profile Tariff?
Some hours in the day are known as ‘peak hours’, because electricity needs are high. By striving to use electricity, when possible, during off-peak hours, you can help reduce peaks in electricity demand.

With the Double Profile Tariff, adjustments to your consumption patterns reduces your bill: this rate is more beneficial if your consumption during off-peak hours represents, depending on the current price, between a fifth and a quarter of your total energy usage.
