Unlike conventional electric rates, Time of Use rates offer different prices for energy at different times of the day and different days of the week, depending on the demand for electricity. Your rate is lower than the standard rate during Off Peak times, about the same during Mid Peak times, and more expensive during On Peak times. By shifting your use to Off Peak times and avoiding On Peak energy use, you can lower your bill! Click Learn More to see the schedule and detailed rates for the program.Learn More
