I‘ve heard rumours about being able to “adjust” the time of the cheap tariff but it will still be a 4 hour block. If you have heard anything else, please post details here.

Danny, you can ask to go on the 'Go Faster' which allows a 3, 4, or 5 hr blocks. These blocks can start at 20:30 or later and I think have to be ended by 07:30?
The price is different depending on the length of block, I think the 3hr block 4p the 4hr block 5p and the 5hr block is 5.5p per unit. I'm on the 5hr block @ 5.5p from 20:30.
Think this link works..

Yes, I saw that. I'm still waiting for my smart meter installation. Just been advised that they're installing on 10th March. So a couple of weeks after that I should hopefully go 'live' and will be able to get on to one of the Go Faster tariffs.

Have you considered the Agile tariff?

Was on it all summer and it was cheaper, 8-9p average, but changed to Go in Dec and it has worked out cheaper than Agile, will prob change back Mar.

Ah, OK. That makes more sense for Agile in summer. I don't have any pv. I just need better rate for EV charging.
