Time-of-Day (5-8 p.m.) Rate
This rate is now the standard rate for all residential customers. To help you prepare for the transition, you'll receive a letter approximately 30 days before your new rate is effective.
What is Time-of-Day?
On the Time-of-Day (TOD) Rate, you pay different rates for electricity based on the season and the time of day that you use it.
Rates are lower during off-peak periods because it costs us less to produce or purchase electricity. Rates increase as demand and cost for electricity increase, especially during the summer months.
Peak hours are only three hours – 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Monday through Friday. All other hours, including all weekends and holidays are off-peak.
TOD Rates help you control your electric bill when you:
- Shift your electricity use to lower-cost off-peak times
- Use less electricity during the 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. peak hours
- Reduce your overall usage
