Time-of-Use Rates

Our Time-of-Use rate encourages you to reduce electricity use during peak hours and super-peak hours by tying your electricity rates to the times at which you use it.
Under the Time-of-Use rate, you’ll pay less during off-peak periods and more during peak and super-peak times—particularly during the summer.

That means you’ll need to change your routine—like running your dishwasher, air conditioner, oven, and dryer only during off-peak hours—or you could end up paying more. But, with the right routine, you should be able to save money each month.

Rules

  • 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 are enrolled with an energy service company and Time-of-Use rate and then switch to full service, you must also abide by the one-year contract.
  • 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.
