Time of Day Rate

Savings You Control

Save energy and money by changing the way you use energy during the summer months. With the Time of Day rate, you’ll pay a lower rate during off-peak hours and a higher rate during peak hours – which is the heat of the day. You control how and when you use energy. By changing when you cook dinner, wash laundry or cool your home, you can enjoy significant savings on energy costs.

The Time of Day rate is a great savings opportunity for customers who can change their lifestyles to minimize energy usage during peak hours. Here are a few things to consider:

  • If the average customer makes SLIGHT changes, you could see an additional $10 savings per month.
  • If the average customer makes SIGNIFICANT changes, you could see an additional $20 savings per month.
  • If the average customer does NOT change the way you use energy during peak hours, you could see a monthly bill up to $20 higher or more.

Here’s how this option works June through September:

 Time of Day Peak Hours

RATE: 31.5 cents/kWh

OFF-PEAK HOURS:
