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.

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.
  • Religious groups need to email us, call 1-877-239-1999, or fax 1-718-923-7071 to change a time-of-use rate.

* Electric vehicle owners on the residential time-of-use rate are eligible for a reduced monthly customer charge. Instead of $20.46, you'll be charged $16.00 if you email us a copy of your electric vehicle registration annually every March. If you have an electric-vehicle-only meter and fail to submit your vehicle registration annually, your account may revert to a small business rate (Service Classification 2 Rate I}, which has a higher monthly customer charge of $28.10.

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.
