This has been a days issue not an every second week for a week one. If you use Flick you get low rates all through the year, and this day's issue may happen a couple of times. Beats me how some love the low rates but can't endure the opposite for a very brief period
I agree with you, but the point I am trying to make is that you need to be home to be able to manage it. If switching appliances off is out of your control, then flick is not right for you.
Granted it was brief period (2 days in a row), but Winter is far from over and there is more to come. I guess its a risk that some are prepared to take, and others not. Personally I would just prefer a flat rate, even if its a bit more.
I just don't see the point of being at work, receiving notification of high prices etc when there is little I can actually do.
Flick is a great idea, they can make far better by perhaps giving users the flexibility of switching between a fixed rate/spot prices whenever required.
With me since my sister never would watch the price of power I ended up spending more in total in the time I've been with Flick compared to EK at the current rates. The problem is her use would be in peak times and no matter how many times I'd tell her she wouldn't change her habits so I am better off with another provider. Again, if it was just me managing it then I'll still be on Flick.
Great concept - just not for everyone.
