I've just changed over to Flick (I'm in Canterbury). Can anyone tell me how often I can expect price spikes? Do these generally happen at a certain time of day? Is it likely that they could happen overnight when things like hot water, heat pump, or perhaps an EV are charging?
Price spikes seem to be less common in the South Island than the North. They can happen anytime but seem to be more frequent in peak times e.g cold afternoon/evening.
If you are on the Orion (Christchurch) network then it's more important to understand the pricing schedule - peak/offpeak/shoulder pricing
