Time Of Use Periods by Electricity Network

Time Of Use PeriodsTime Of Use (also known as Flexible or TOU) tariffs have different prices for electricity at different periods of the day. By understanding these time periods you can make decisions to shift when you use power to hours when it is cheaper to buy electricity from the grid.For those on TOU tariffs, it’s important to know the hours that different peak, shoulder and off-peak rates apply. Peak period electricity is the most expensive and usually applies during the afternoon and early evening during the week when demand is high. Off-peak electricity is the cheapest and applies overnight and across weekends when demand is the lowest. Shoulder applies between Peak and Off-Peak times and the cost is lower than peak. To make it easy for you to know the Time Of Use periods that apply at your location, we’ve included a rundown of all major electricity networks across Australia for residential and small business customers.
