Tell us: are you participating in the National Grid’s scheme?

We would like to speak to people in Great Britain who are being paid to take part in the Demand Flexibility Service

Households and businesses in Great Britain were paid to cut back on their electricity use between 5pm and 6pm on Monday in the first test of a National Grid scheme.

More than 1m households and businesses have signed up to the Demand Flexibility Service, the National Grid’s bid to cut energy consumption.

We would like to speak to participants in the scheme about how the first test went on Monday. Why did you decide to do it? What steps did you take? What did you do for the hour? Did it all go to plan? Were there any difficulties?
