  1. Ebico Night Owl; I have known about Ebico Zero for a bit and for those who dont use alot of gas have a nil standing charge, great for those who still want to cook on gas but nothing else. Now they have introduced the "Night Owl" tariff for economy 7 users for 0pkWh - yes its free! Well nothing's for free - there is a standing charge, its fixed for 12 months pay by DD, you need a Smart Meter operating in credit mode, or an Economy 7 Credit Meter. And there is a fair use being 60% of your bill in off-peak hours. All that said you could get all your heating and hot water for free, especially if you were time shifting a heat pump and storing the heat generated for use on demand during on-peak times, but remember the size of the storage you will need is twice the size of something working with E10 Ok, so I can hear the cogs going round, so please go and check out if it might be something for you? Now I am not sure about those of us who have E10 meters so I may have to do a bit of research. Octopus Tracker; For those of you who might be into Demand Side Management of their energy then the next offering is VERY interesting! Claimed as Britain's first tariff to truly follow the wholesale price of energy! Every day, they update the price of your energy based on an independently published wholesale market price, so just like shares the price can go up as well as down. However this means they could pay you to take energy! So with an email IFTTT app to link to your Sonoff WiFi switch link you might be able to automatically take advantage, and charge your electric car, store energy for your heating and hot water and use these on demand at other times. Please go to to check out if this might be able to help you save money on your energy bills You can also register your interest at the same point. Kind regards AndyT
