Demand Periods by Electricity Network

Time Of Use PeriodsDemand tariffs have an additional charge tied to the maximum amount of electricity used in a specified time period. By understanding these time periods you can make decisions to minimise using grid power during the hours when peak demand is measured to reduce your household or small business electricity bill. For those on demand tariffs, it’s important to know the specific hours that peak (and potentially shoulder) demand apply throughout the week and across the year (as some tariffs have different peak hours in summer, winter and other months).

To make it easy for you to know the Demand periods that apply at your location, we’ve included a rundown of all major electricity networks across Australia for residential and small business customers.
