my hours are 23.30 - 7.30 and have been for the past 9 nine years, I think the times differ in different areas.

EDF is getting rid of the heurs creuses during midday....so if you still have it enjoy as it wont be much longer! it will be 8 hours during the night for everyone.

The change in the hours are only on my latest edf bill  rcd,a few days ago, the previous bill lists the hours harley rider mention . Look carefully on the left hand  of any new bill where it says 'electricite tafif bleu' 

I hear the switching automatically on my meter , faairly close to the stated new times. perhaps they are changing in stages , depending on the locality ? 

It must be 2 or 3 months since I had a letter explaining the changes , so  not a surprise to me .

All tarif bleu must surely be the same , allowing some leeway in changing over .? I cannot believe I am unique ?

We haven't had a letter to say the change, perhaps it is just for the option that doesn't get the 2hrs midday. We get 2 hrs 12.30 ish to 2.30ish. And then the other 5 hrs during the night, when the washer and dishwasher go on.

Hi,  we're on Tarrif Bleu.   7 days a week, our power switches at 12:37 for two hours and again at 01:37 until 07:37.  We here it "click" as our metre is in our kitchen.

EDF changed the hours of the pleine and creuse tariffs in September in Brittany. I was sent a letter months ago explaining the change .

The hours for the tarifs are on the left hand side of the main bill sent out , now 21.30 H  - 0530H , no mention of Sunday difference

I have only just spotted this item whilst looking for something else. I am fairly sure that the off peak hours (heures creuses) only operate at night - about 23.30 to 7.30. Take a look at the EDF website under "particuliers" (individuals as opposed to business users).

I guess you have had no replies because this is posted under Non Local instead of the main headings - did you put the posting in the Non Local ?
