Economy 7 at a glance
Economy 7 is made up of two rates, a Day Rate and a Night Rate. The Night Rate gives you seven hours of cheaper electricity for all appliances used at night.
The Night Rate period is usually between 11pm and 7.30am, though the exact times are set by Jersey Electricity.
Who is it for?
Economy 7 is likely to suit you if:
- You can store heat, heat water or use appliances at night
- You can use 15%-20% of your total daily electricity during the cheaper Night Rate hours
Economy 7 is not ideal if a lot of your electricity usage is during the day.
Economy 7 in action
Economy 7's Night Rate suits high-efficiency electric storage heaters. Their high heat retention mean they are unlikely to need the daytime boost offered by the Comfort Heat tariff.
The Night Rate also suits electric vehicle chargers and other appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines which can be timed to take advantage of the discounted period, if safe to do so.
It is also useful for summer water heating if you have gas or central oil-fired heating, but also have an electric immersion hot water storage tank that can be run at night.
