Welcome to the Smart Energy Plan
In the past, the only way to save was to cut back on your overall energy use—something we know can be difficult. Now with the Smart Energy Plan, we’re giving you more control over how you save energy.
How the Smart Energy Plan is Different
The delivery portion of your bill will now be based on how efficiently you use the grid.
Your new delivery cost will be based on when you choose to use electricity and how much electricity your devices use at the same time. To lower your delivery costs, use fewer devices at once.
The difference between our standard delivery rate and the Smart Energy Plan is like the difference between a car’s speedometer and odometer. The speedometer indicates a car’s speed at a specific moment in time, similar to how your delivery will now be measured. The odometer indicates the number of miles a car travels over time, similar to how your delivery is measured on the standard rate.
You’ve Got Two Ways to Save
Stagger the use of your large electric devices instead of using them all at once to keep delivery low.
Shift your energy use to off-peak hours to see even greater savings.
Peak: 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday
Off-peak: All other hours
* Same as on your previous rate, a basic-service charge of $16.00, plus applicable taxes and surcharges, also. All pricing information can be found in the Con Edison electric tariff under SC 1 Rider Z, Rate III.
See How You Can Save
By staggering the use of large devices, you can save energy and money, especially during peak hours. Waiting until off-peak hours and staggering the use of large devices saves the most money.
