Time-of-Day has arrived

The new Time-of-Day (5-8 p.m.) Rate is the standard rate for all residential customers.

What is Time-of-Day?

  • You pay different rates for electricity based on when you use it 

  • Rates are lower when it costs us less to produce electricity and they go up when both demand and cost for electricity increase

  • Shift when you use electricity to control your costs
