Time-of-Use Rates

Timing is everything. Learn how much you could save on our residential and small business time-of-use rates.

Under our residential time-of-use rate, you’ll pay less than our standard rate for electricity any time of day between October and May.

During the summer months, June through September, you’ll need to shift some of your energy use to off-peak hours (midnight to 8 a.m.) and avoid using large devices and appliances during peak times, as well as super-peak period (Monday through Friday from 2 to 6 p.m.).

Super-peak Pricing

Electricity supply is an additional cost. Summer super-peak pricing is in effect from June through September on weekdays between 2 and 6 p.m. Super-peak charges are significantly higher than supply charges during the rest of the day. Save by opting to power down during super-peak periods.

Super-peak pricing does not apply to customers who purchase their electricity supply from energy service companies. Estimate your supply and delivery charges with our market-supply charge calculator.

Residential Time-of-use Terms

  • If you’re a full-service Con Edison customer and you switch to the time-of-use rate, you must remain on the time-of-use rate for one year from the date of the switch.
  • If you then switch back to the standard residential rate, you will be unable to re-enroll in the time-of-use rate for 18 months.
  • If you get your energy from an energy service company, you’re not bound by the one-year requirement so long as you do not become a full-service Con Edison customer. However, like those on full service, if you get your energy from an energy service company, you won’t be able to re-enroll in the time-of-use rate for 18 months if you switch back to the standard rate.
