Say Hello 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.
How the Smart Energy Plan is Different
Part of your delivery charge will be based on the amount of energy you use, and the rest will be based on how efficiently you use the grid.
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 lower your energy delivery costs.
Shift your energy use to off-peak hours to see even greater savings.
Peak: Noon to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday
Off-peak: All other hours
Smart Energy Plan Delivery Rates*
Your new delivery charge will be based on Demand and Usage.
Year-round usage is calculated at $0.06 per kWh.
See How You Can Save
Even if you use the same amount of energy, you can still reduce total energy costs if you consistently stagger your use of large devices. You could save as much as 1 kW and see about a $10 difference in your monthly bills.
Waiting until off-peak hours and staggering the use of large devices saves the most money.
