Triad Challenge

Overview

The second year of our AWARD WINNING Triad Challenge was held between Nov 18 and Mar 19 to avoid peak electricity consumption, Triad’s. Triad’s occur during 3 half-hour periods throughout the winter when the UK’s national electricity demand is at its highest.

We do not know when these peaks will occur until they’ve happened and winter is over, but we do receive alerts from Eon of potential Triad (high cost) periods where you must take action to reduce electricity consumption for some big wins. A kWh on a normal hour costs about 13p but during a Triad half hour a kWh costs a whopping £100. On a wider scale the purpose of taking action during these periods doesn’t just help save us some money, it also supports National Grid to balance the UK’s electricity supply to keep the lights on when demand is high.
