Beginning March 2013 and continuing over the next several years, Small and Medium Agriculture customers will transition to time-of-use rates. Rates transitioning: AG1A and AG1B, monthly demand up to 200 kW.
Peak Day Pricing options are also available.
Instead of a single flat rate for energy use, time-of-use rates are higher when electric demand is higher. Higher demand periods are typically weekdays May through October, noon to 6 p.m. In return, time-of-use rates are lower at all other times.
This means that when you use energy is just as important as how much you use. If you conserve electricity in your business during peak hours, you can save money on your electric bills.
The transition to time-of-use rates is part of a statewide plan to ensure greater power reliability and a better energy future for California.
Peak Day Pricing rate options are available. Small and Medium Agriculture customers can opt in to Peak Day Pricing if they feel it will be beneficial.
