National Grid Ready To Pay Customers To Switch Off!

๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ’ท “Turn off to earn” 

๐Ÿ˜ Households will be paid for reducing their electricity use for the first time today under plans being drawn up by the National Grid. 

โ„๏ธ As temperatures are expected to plummet to -2C, ramping up pressure on Britain’s power network, its operator is planning to ask consumers to use less electricity between 5pm & 6pm to help it manage supplies. 

๐Ÿ“Š Around a million people have signed up to the scheme, under which they will be paid as much as ยฃ10 per day to use less electricity at certain times. 

๐Ÿงบ This could mean avoiding running a washing machine or dishwasher during that period. 

๐Ÿ”ฅ In a further sign of the strain on the energy supply, National Grid has also asked for extra coal-fired power plants to supply back-up electricity.
