My hot water already runs during off-peak times. How will SmartShift™ help me?


SmartShift™ will pick cheaper and greener times to run within your controlled load window - typically, times when cheap wind generation is at its peak.

And if there’s a sweltering hot summer night where everyone running their aircons sends the wholesale price soaring, SmartShift™ will skip those times automatically.

We may also be able to help you move to a “Solar Sponge” network tariff, which adds an additional off-peak window during the middle of the day (10am - 3pm) when there’s lots of cheap solar in the grid. You’ll be able to get power to your controlled load line during these times, when energy from both the wind and sun is available in the grid, driving down the wholesale price.
