The new deal – dubbed Tide – uses the latest smart meter technology and variable pricing during the day and at weekends to enable customers to vary their usage in line with fluctuations in the price of wholesale electricity.

Doug Stewart, Green Energy UK’s chief executive, said: “The introduction of smart metering presents the opportunity for a different way to buy energy, a different way to manage our usage, a different way of controlling our bills; a way of being smart in every sense of the word.

“Our new tariff is called Tide and is about being savvy and smart, where being smart is the way customers can bring down their electric vehicle charging bills, not trying to find the cheapest deal with a new-on-the-block-supplier.

“The introduction of a Time of Day Tariff is the first step into the new world of energy infrastructure; a step which puts consumers in charge, lets them take control and decide when they use energy and what that means to their bill.”
