Does that mean that Octopus Agile will be charging the capped maximum  35p/kWh at this time?

Yep, 35p from 5pm to 7pm this evening.

And my house is still fully powered by solar alone, EV full, home battery full, hot water full, storage heater full, and I've still fed 10kWh into the grid today. wackoold

I do not understand the logic of the national grid or what on earth is going on.

Sizewell B has had a unit shutdown at request of grid for the last few months, we knew that and already discussed here.
Todays access to the EDF website shows that SZB are bringing back the shutdown turbine generator into service and shutting down the running unit. so the derogation continues despite the grid running coal units and most of the CCGTs. To me this seems highly illogical. unless EDF are hiding troubles at SZB, which I do not believe is the case.

Also Hartlepools import has increased, which indicates that the shutdown units gas circulators are now running and the unit is returning to service as we speak.

Torness is now running at full load. Grid derogation now removed.

I have a lot of sympathy with Nat Grid, it sure is a resonsibility i would not want going forward.

In the past the supply and demand of leccy was largely predictable but we are now moving to nearly the opposite. Yes we can still get close to demand but supply is what?   You tell me what wind particularly will be doing in 1 months time, will it be flooding the market with excess or non producing. The production of RE is proceeding faster than the means to cater for its variabality.

Only 540/MWh,

With this years coal closures and continuing low nuclear output, coupled with troubles in the French nuclear industry. rioting and troubles in Byelorussia, things could look very interesting. Not for HMG of course whose event horizon is the next half day or end of nose! Time to buy in some alternative solid liquid and gaseous fuels to cook and heat with. Also a good fleece and jumpers too. The above price  for the evening peak will look reassuringly cheap in hindsight.
