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.

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.

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.

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.
