hi kidjensen and welcome to the community.
The real answer is that's how PP decided they wanted to do things, one rate and keep it simple, but of course depending on your day/night usage there may be companies which offer you a more beneficial rate.
It shouldn't have come as a surprise since your quote and welcome pack will have detailed that there is only one rate.
Also if you came through a comparison website that also will have shown it.
PP don't have an economy 7 tariff as such, but you have an economy 7 meter.

Never mind...look on the bright side, you no longer have to worry about using the higher consumption appliances during the day...

Hi Kidjensen,

Welcome to the community lots of support here.

PP only offers its customers with 1 single tariff providing clean energy at "cost price with no mark up".
I did an exercise/calculation last year for a member of family who has E7 with day and night units at the lower night tariff and higher day tariff.
The exercise on the usage split proved that PP's 1 single offer was more than favourable and saved on energy costs.

PP have never provided more than their 1 tariff meaning you are always on their best rate.
