When is my power off peak?
The off peak time slots are between 9am-5pm and 9pm-7am every day.
Use an Hour of Power for free between these off peak times.
What do I need to know?
- You can update your Hour of Power at any time.
- Your free timeslot will remain the same until you decide to choose a new one.
- Any change before midnight will be active for that day.
