How to Save During the Summer
Shift your energy use during the summer to hours without peak pricing to reduce or avoid overage charges.
Summer—June 1 to September 30
Peak: Noon to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays
To avoid overage charges, try not to run large devices all at the same time during summer peak hours. Email and text notifications can help you stay on track.

Fixed Delivery Billing Plan Rates
On the Fixed Delivery Billing Plan, you’ll pay $18.10 per kW. Multiply this by the total amount of kW included in your plan to get your fixed delivery charge.*
During summer peak hours, an overage charge of $23.94 per kW will be applied if you exceed the kW amount included in your plan.
See How You Can Save
Even if you use the same amount of energy, you can still reduce next year’s total energy costs if you consistently stagger your use of large devices. You could save as much as 1 kW and see about a $20 difference in your monthly bills next year.
Even though your plan is fixed, it’s still important to be mindful of how you’re using energy because your behavior will affect next year’s delivery charge. Don’t worry if you don’t see immediate savings—you’ll get them next year if you stagger and shift your energy usage this year.
Get Ready to Take Control of Your Energy Bill
