Time-of-Day (5-8 p.m.) Rate

This rate will become the standard rate for all residential customers in 2019. Some customers will transition to the rate as early as October 2018, with most customers transitioning in early 2019.

What is Time-of-Day?

On the Time-of-Day 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.

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 5-8 p.m. peak hours
  • Reduce your overall usage
