In this regard, more and more people reflects the constant growth in electricity prices over how to save their money and reduce the costs associated with this vital resource.
Then come to the aid of multi-tariff electricity meters.
Electricity consumption is almost always a significant item of expenditure. Do not save from large embezzlement even energy saving lighting and appliances.
An alternative method of saving the family budget is to set tariff meters. However, in our country they are not yet ubiquitous, and not everyone knows what is their benefit.
Types of tariff meters
By itself, the multi-tariff counter is notis something new. The only difference from the standard single-rate electricity is electricity that is produced keeping them differentially.
When using multi-tariff electricity energy consumption is taken into account not one figure, but several.
Depending on which program is laid in such a counter, accounting can be done in two or three rates.
Dual-rate counters of the electric power consumed energy is divided into two time slots: day and night. Trehtarifnye also secrete the night period, as well as the peak and half-peak areas.
The specifics of the various multi-tariff electricity meters
Daily rates on all kinds of multi-tariff meter operates from 7 am to 23 pm. The cost of electricity during this period is almost identical to the normal single price.
For trehtarifnyh counters this period is also divided into peak and semi-peak areas.
Peak area - two time slots whenpower consumption is at its maximum. That time period is from 07:00 to 10:00 and 17:00 to 21:00. The electricity in this period is the most expensive and cost the owners trehtarifnyh counters even more than the users of the standard single-rate meters.
Time intervals from 10:00 to 17:00 and from 21:00 to 23:00 are called polupikooy zone. The use of electricity during these periods allows owners trehtarifnyh counters to save about 15% of funds spent on electricity costs.
The use of electricity at night is the most profitable, because the rates on it at this time is reduced almost 4 times compared to the daytime.
The main cost savings starts atconsumption of electricity during the night. It lasts from 23:00 to 07:00, but the cost of one kilowatt of electricity is reduced by almost 4 times compared with fluorescent or standard flat-rate tariffs.
Of course, not everyone will be able to immediately adjust to the operation of multi-tariff meters, but the redistribution of the electricity used at night greatly save you money.
