The State Electricity Service DEI reminds consumers that from November 1, the winter night tariff for electricity comes into force.
Consumption, which occurs within 24 hours, is paid at different rates: at the rate of the C1 home account and at a preferential reduced “night” price at a certain time. Please note that night power supply is offered by all electricity providers.
How do I know if you are connected to the night tariff?
The easiest way to find out if the night power is on is to check the meter. In order for the night current to “work”, the meter must keep a double record, i.e. there should be two counters. One will be indicated by the letter K and the other by M. If the indicator marked M (night tariff) is moving, it means that the night power is on. The second way to confirm that night power is on is to examine your electricity bill. For example, in the DEI account, the night rate is designated as “C1N Home Rate” (“Γ1Ν Οικιακό Τιμολόγιο”). Alternative electricity providers have an “N” next to the nightly rate mode. In addition, the night charge and kilowatt hours should be shown in detail on the back of the light bill. The third way is to check the panel installed on the house (in many cases there is an indicator light that lights up at night.
The night tariff schedule is determined by ΔΕΔΔΗΕ. In any case, citizens can contact the electricity supplier to find out if the night power service, which offers lower rates, is activated. For more information, individuals who intend to join the night rate program can visit the district office of DEI or the official website of the company (https://www.dei.gr) και του ΔΕΔΔΗΕ (http://www.deddie.gr/).
The night tariff has 2 categories:
1. Temporary (partial) consumption
1.1 Continuous hours of electricity / energy consumption for 8 hours (23: 00-07: 00). This mode is applicable to consumers who have already used it and do not want to change.
1.2. Partial period with “breakdown”, that is, two hours during the day (15: 00-17: 00) plus 6 hours at night (02: 00-08: 00), 8 hours in total. This applies to the following consumer groups:
Winter season: from November 1st to April 30th.
02: 00-08: 00 and 15: 00-17: 00 for clients connected to the mainland network and associated islands. 02: 00-08: 00 and 15: 30-17: 30 for customers not connected to the mainland of the islands.
Summer season: from May 1st to October 31st.
23: 00-07: 00.
All year round: from 23:00 to 07:00.
Household invoices with a continuous schedule are no longer issued throughout the year. Applies to residential customers who had a reduced night rate before 1988 (if no change was required since then) or who live in certain geographic areas of the country where there is no suitable technical infrastructure ΔΕΔΔΗΕ (distribution network), i.e. no system ΤΑΣ (Remote Acoustic Frequency Control, Τηλεχειρισμός Ακουστικής Συχνότητας). Check with your local ΔΕΔΔΗΕ service offices for the regions where the TAΣ system operates.
To switch to the night tariff, you must visit the service center ΔΕΔΔΗΕ Network Services with your electricity bill, ID and proof of your TIN, in order to submit a new contract in your name. And the old light bill. When concluding a new contract, you will have to pay 34 euros + FPA – as compensation for DEI’s expenses.
When might come in handy:
When using electrical appliances that consume a large amount of energy; If the total energy consumption both day and night exceeds 800 kW per quarter; If the quarterly total consumption is less than 800 kW, but the night energy consumption is at least 150 kW per quarter.
When can you benefit most:
Programming equipment (washing machine, dishwasher, water heater) to work at grace times. Using a stove, iron or air conditioner during grace hours. Electrical appliances operating 24 hours (refrigerator, electronic appliances in standby mode) – a third of the daily operating time will be calculated at discounted prices. …
