solarZero is a great venture that combines solar power and battery technology. When your solar and battery is running low on supply, Ecotricity steps in when you need to take power from the grid.
Our job is to link you to direct wholesale market prices to make sure you’re getting the most affordable price plan on offer.
How does the wholesale market work with solarZero?
The wholesale market fluctuates every half hour but you will save money in the long run as you are linked directly to the costs of electricity (plus a small margin).
Being linked to the wholesale market means you can access off peak and peak pricing to draw electricity from the grid when it’s cheap and avoid grid power through peak times when prices are high. Lucky for you, your battery is already set to off peak and peak times so that you’re getting the best deal on your power.
Peak times: 7am – 9am and 5pm -8pm
Off peak times: all other hours. Cheapest period of the day is 12am – 4am.
