The bills you currently receive are in fact based on how much you use, but not when you use it – P272 changes that with new time-of-use tariffs.

The costs of buying and transporting electricity vary significantly over the day. BSC Modification P272 encourages suppliers to offer new time-of-use tariffs, where the price varies according to the time of day that electricity is used.

When you choose a time-of-use tariff, you can make big savings on bills by using electricity when it is cheapest, for example, when demand is lower or when low-cost renewable electricity is available.

Brief Refresher: What are BSC P272 and P322 Exactly?
