Learn about time-of-use rate plans
These rate plans can help you save money based on when your business uses energy. They offer lower rates when energy demand is low and rates increase when energy demand is high. Electric charges vary based on the time of day and the season. With time-of-use rate plans, your business can save costs by reducing energy usage during the more expensive peak demand hours.
Explore Peak Day Pricing rates
Peak Day Pricing is an optional rate that combines the time-of-use rate with surcharges on a handful of Event Days each year. You can receive credits for reducing energy usage during the nine to 15 Event Days during the summer (June through September), typically from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. You pay more during peak periods on Event Days and less during all other periods. We can send you automatic alerts before an Event Day as a reminder.
