Picking up an ID3 soon - with EI at the moment with the standard meter but told they are replacing with a smart meter in the coming weeks. I know VW have the SSE offer at the mo but are they the best provider to go with initially or what are you finding is the best option for supplier.
It looks like a good option to get a day night meter and switch to Airtricity. One of their offers to new customers is day rate of 16.38c and night rate of 8.9c with the €675 credit.
If you know your annual consumption (projected day/night use), switcher.ie is very good to make comparisons
Edited to correct current SSE Airtricity rate.
I have a smart meter too. Looking for the best option at present as well.
With a smart meter you have to get a smart plan though (or stick with standard 24H), ie can't get the old fashioned Day/Night rate plan?
am wondering this as well, are the smart meters configured for Day/Night?
Smart Meters do not do the typical Day/Night, they have different setup of hours.
Hence avoid if you want to hold onto your Day/Night rates
Smart meter only for me - So I have the option of:
Unit rate 15.29 cent
Day rate 16.04 cent
Night rate 12.17 cent
Peak rate 17.10 cent
Standing charge €211.86
Will be back to the office in January I'd say so car charging will be done there 90% of the time.
