Tiered Rate Plan E-1 if you're able to conserve energy throughout the month, and unable to decrease your energy use in the late afternoon and early evening hours.

  • This rate plan has multiple pricing levels, known as tiers.
  • As you use up your allotted electricity allowance for each tier during the billing period, you move to the next, higher priced tier.

Home Charging EV2-A (Non-tiered, Time-of-Use) if you have an electric vehicle (EV) or battery, and can charge it during off-peak hours, in addition to shifting other household electricity usage.

  • Save money by charging your EV during off-peak hours.
  • To maximize overall savings, consider shifting other household energy use to less expensive, off-peak hours, especially 12 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

EV-B (Non-tiered, Time-of-Use) if you have an electric vehicle and would like to meter your vehicle charging separate from your home.

  • This rate plan involves installing a second electric meter, which may be costly.
  • One meter is used for your home energy use and another meter is used for charging your EV, measuring each usage separately.
  • The price you pay for vehicle charging is based on the time of day, and day of the week.
  • Save money by charging your EV at night during off-peak hours, especially after 11 p.m. on weekdays and after 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
