Check out the plan details

  • On the plan, your typical electric rate is reduced from June 1 to September 30, except on SmartDays.
  • SmartDays™ are days when electric rates are higher from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • SmartDays can be called any day of the year including weekends and holidays (although events on these days are much less likely to occur). A maximum of 15 SmartDays are called each year.
  • We notify you by 2 p.m. on the day before a SmartDay, so you can plan to shift or reduce your electricity usage the following day.
  • SmartRate is voluntary. You can opt out at any time.
  • SmartRate is risk-free and backed by our Bill Protection guarantee. Bill Protection helps ensure that you don't pay more your first full summer on the plan.
