So the government in there wisdom decided not to release any of information on there new Initiative.

Some electric company’s are now paying customers to use electric outside of peak hours.

check it out it might be worth switching your lights to come on at night & off during the day.

certainly not looking forward to any electrical power cuts that might or might not happen

@mix you're right mate, if they happen (and there's consistent rumours they will) it won't be fun. Just how long these cuts might last not sure anyone knows. Living out in the sticks we suffer more often than many with temporary outages and have made some provision over the years. I do have a back-up generator that also serves an outbuilding where I have my current small grow. Another garage where I have a freezer, is not served, but I do have a battery bank and inverter for supply. But this doesn't last forever ! 

In short it's a f*cking pain and would much rather it didn't happen. Especially when, in my opinion, there was never any need and the whole mess is being deliberately created, rather like a certain recent pandemic 

Time to grow old disgracefully.

I've tended to run my lights in the evening/overnight as that's when I'm home and it's cooler during warm periods. Don't think my supplier is discounting off-peak usage but will look at switching if some are. Every little helps right now. It's outrageous.
