Help with smart plan

    I've recently added 10kwh of battery storage and I was thinking of changing to Electric Irelands Home Electric + Night Boost.

    I'm currently on a standard plan at 37 cent per unit and 300 euro standing charge and still in contract. I've been trying to contact them for a week and a half now but having no joy.

    I've had a look around and Energia have this plan. EV Smart Charge Time

    Energia plan has 4 hour low rate vs EI's 2 hour and the Energia standing charge is 236 vs EI at 400. CEG is also 4c per kwh higher with Energia. In the plan details they mention a threshold rate, anybody know what this is?

    My own thoughts on this are that the lower standing charge, longer very low night rate plus the increased CEG rate make this an attractive plan compared to the EI plan.

    Really I'm just looking for a sanity check before I proceed. Any thoughts?
