Take part in the Demand Flexibility Service

The Demand Flexibility Service (DFS) rewards people for changing the times when they use the most electricity.

  • The Demand Flexibility Service offers financial rewards to people who use less electricity during ‘peak times’. These are usually late afternoon/early evening.

  • The DFS was created to reduce pressure on the electricity grid during peak times. This means we can avoid powering up fossil fuel power stations or importing energy when demand is high.

  • Financial rewards for DFS participants are typically small (between £1 and £5 per event) but people take part for other reasons like wanting to support a low carbon energy system or to learn about their energy use.

  • It only considers electricity use – so gas heating and cooking won’t affect your rewards.
