Off-peak electricity

Off-peak electricity is: ‘… identified by the presence of a multi-rate meter (as opposed to single rate), and is able to provide discounted electricity tariffs during periods of reduced demand (such as at night). This can reduce the cost of heating, most commonly for those with, storage radiator systems.’
