Economy 10 Tariffs To Reduce Your Household Expenses
Economy 10 tariffs consist of 10 hours of off-peak electricity, which suppliers offer at a reduced rate. Like economy 7, this tariff suits households that have storage heaters and appliances that can be set to run at particular times. Unlike economy 7, economy 10 customers not only enjoy 7 hours of discounted electricity overnight, they also get an extra 3 hours in the afternoon.
E.ON, Southern Electric and EDF all offer economy 10 tariffs.

To cut your bills with economy 10, you will need to schedule around 20% of your energy consumption during the discounted period. Economy 10 users often set their boilers, night storage heaters, and appliances to automatically switch on during the cheaper period.
To be on an economy 10 tariff, you must have an economy 10 meter. These differ from standard meters as they can also measure the consumption of electricity during the discounted periods, as specified by the supplier.
Almost any home can have an economy 10 meter fitted, if desired. You should be aware that there may be a charge for installing the meter.
