If you can use the power during the day, then yes, definitely worth it, bit if not no.

Pools, tanks, irrigators, kids at home, work from home, high usage, etc etc, then yes VERY worth it. Literally "free" after the upfront cost.

I accept the argument from Symon re hot water timer etc, but for most people this is not the case.
In Sydney electric HWS do not meet the Basix ratings (Yes I accept circumstance, exceptions etc etc, but on a whole they don't meet.)
Also if you put the timer on between 12 and 4 and on that day you have clouds or rain etc, you pay peak price which pretty much burns a hole in your wallet!!!

Every circumstance is unique, but generally if you ain't using it, you're wasting it.

Pools, tanks, irrigators, kids at home, work from home, high usage, etc etc, then yes VERY worth it. Literally "free" after the upfront cost.
