Time-of-Use Rates

Timing is everything. Under our time-of-use rate, you’ll pay less during off-peak periods than you would under our standard small commercial or residential rates, and more during peak and summer super-peak times. See our time-of-use rate guides to learn how much you and your business can save if you limit energy use during peak and super-peak periods.

  • 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.

One-Year Price Guarantee for Electric Vehicle Owners

Own an electric vehicle? You can try our time-of-use rate for one year with no risk. After you’ve been billed on time-of-use for 12 months, we’ll compare what you paid under time-of-use rates with what you would have paid under our standard residential rate. If you paid more, we’ll credit your account for the difference.

To apply, send the following to EVprograms@conEd.com:

  • Your name, 15-digit Con Edison account number, and phone number.
  • A signed, written request to be billed under the voluntary time-of-use rate.
  • Please specify if you have solar panels installed at your home or are in the process of installing solar panels.
  • A copy of your electric vehicle registration with an address that matches the service address of your Con Edison account. If your registration doesn't match the service address, please provide a copy of your registration along with other documentation verifying that the electric vehicle will be charged at your home.

Super-peak Pricing

Summer super-peak pricing is in effect from June through September on weekdays between 2 p.m. 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.

Electric Vehicle

If you charge an electric vehicle at your home, you may choose to install a separate meter solely for this purpose, even if you live in an apartment complex. You’ll need to hire a licensed electrician to do the necessary wiring, and to install a new meter pan and panel. But, if you do, you’ll qualify for our electric vehicle time-of-use rate, which will reduce your charging costs during off-peak hours.

TIME-OF-USE DELIVERY RATES

How to Apply

ONLINE: Your electrician will need to submit a work request through Con Edison’s Project Center.

Terms

  • No equipment other than an electric-vehicle charger may be connected to the meter billed under the EV-only time-of-use rate.
  • If you live in a building where the electric bill is included in your rent or maintenance charges and do not have a Con Edison account, you may still be able to benefit from this rate.
