Save With Time-of-Use!
Energy-conscious customers can save money if you use electricity during off-peak periods when costs are lower.
Our Time-of-Use program is designed to encourage customers to reduce electricity use during peak hours. Under the program, you will be charged for electricity depending on when you use it. The rates are lowest on off-peak periods: weekends, holidays, and weekdays from 10 p.m. to10 a.m., when usage and the cost of electricity are low. Rates are higher during other periods, when usage and the cost of generating electricity are much higher. It may help to view these rates in the same way as peak and off-peak telephone rates or airline fares.
Will I Need a New Meter?
Yes. We will need to change or modify your meter so that it can measure the amounts of electricity you use within different time periods each day of the week. With your new meter, you can check your usage during each of the Time-of-Use rate periods and monitor your electric usage patterns.
How Can I Benefit?
Research shows that, in the course of a year, many customers can save money by shifting their usage to off-peak hours or cut back on the energy they use during peak hours especially during summer months when rates are highest. Please take the quiz below to see if you would benefit from Time-of-Use.
Can I Change My Mind?
We are offering this rate on a voluntary basis, so if you feel you are not benefiting from the Time-of-Use rate, just let us know and we will change your account back to standard rates.
