Regen alongside partners including Western Power Distribution (WPD), Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) and Tempus Energy ran a Sunshine Tariff trail in Wadebridge, Cornwall and we are keen to share the learnings and lessons from this project.The trial was looking to understand how different customers engage with a cheaper daytime tariff.

During this webinar, we provided a brief introduction to the trial, set out our findings and gave you a chance to ask questions.

If you’d like to listen again or pass onto your colleagues, you can find the recording here. Please note that there is no sound for the first few minutes.

Throughout the webinar we mentioned a number of reports from the trial. You can find them on our website here.

The Sunshine Tariff trial explored the potential of an ‘offset connection agreement’, designed to enable generation customers to connect to the grid on the basis that they could change the pattern of local demand on the network to offset the power generated.

The incentive for customers to shift their demand to the middle of the day was provided by a time of use tariff – the Sunshine Tariff – which provided cheap electricity between 10:00-16:00 from April to September.
