Your Gateway to Free Electricity!

Discover a revolutionary opportunity to harness the power of renewable energy with CUB Power Hours. We’re thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking program that allows businesses like yours to enjoy free electricity during designated CUB Power Hours.

Get Paid to Balance the Energy System!

Imagine getting free electricity. With CUB’s Power Hours, it’s not just a possibility; it’s an opportunity waiting for you. In collaboration with UK Power Networks and ESO, we bring you an exciting offer: free additional electricity in return for your help to balance the energy system.

What Are Power Hours?

Power Hours mark a significant breakthrough in sustainable energy consumption. These special hours occur when the local area experiences a surplus of electricity generated from renewable sources.

How do Power Hours work?

  • Duration: Typically lasting between one and four hours, Power Hours present a window to maximize your energy consumption with zero cost implications.
  • Notification: Stay in the loop! CUB will send you an email notification, providing ample notice ahead of a Power Hours Event. We understand the importance of planning, and we aim to give you the heads-up, usually a day in advance, though occasionally on the same day.
  • Opt-In: To participate, all you need to do is respond to our email and opt in. It’s that simple!
  • Free Electricity: During Power Hours, use as much power as your business requires. Any electricity consumed is free.
  • Reimbursement: CUB will calculate the electricity used during each Power Hours session and reimburse you monthly in arrears. This means any electricity you consume during Power Hours will be entirely free.
  • No Penalties: Don’t worry if you can’t increase your usage – no penalties.

“Helpful, professional and personable - our clients tell us these words best describe CUB. and sets us apart from the competition and why we measure the length of our relationships with customers in decades.”
