Some households with smart meters could be eligible for discounts if they cut their use of electricity between 5 and 6pm today.

The National Grid ESO (electricity system operator) is, for the first time, activating the “demand flexibility service (DFS)” – which allows it to access additional flexibility when national demand is at its highest during peak winter days.

The scheme entitles households with up-to-date smart meters, who are signed up to the scheme via their supplier, to discounts if they cut their use of electricity by turning off energy intensive appliances during set times.  https://news.sky.com/story/national-grid-to-pay-households-to-use-less-electricity-as-coal-fired-power-generators-put-on-standby-12793319?fbclid=IwAR21wBbCI8mkEP8lovjZNe9P1vx8CGw5iOZc-uBevIvKZKN4tOPhgw2xxxQ
