Upcoming rate changes

The way we use electricity has changed a lot in the past 20 years so we're changing how we structure our rate to better reflect how and when customers use electricity.

Here's what you can expect in the new rate restructure:

  • New rate category names
  • Rename Time-of-Use to Time-of-Day
  • New time periods
  • New save time periods
  • Changes to bill line items

The timeline for the rate restructure transition is October 2021 through March 2022. 

Time-of-Day rate periods

We’re updating from Time-of-Use to Time-of-Day rate periods to better align with our customers' electricity use and to take maximum advantage of solar production.
