Time-Of-Use Residential Rate Plans

Time-Of-Use (TOU) Rate Plans

If you are able to manage your energy habits, one of our Time-Of-Use plans may be the best fit for your home. Rates on a TOU plan are based on the time of day and the season.

TOU plans can help you manage your energy costs. By taking advantage of lower rates during off-peak and super off-peak periods, you can avoid higher weekday rates when energy resources are in demand.

  • Electricity prices are typically lower early in the day, overnight, and on the weekends
  • Bills may be higher during the summer but overall annual energy costs can be lower
  • The new TOU 4-9PM and 5-8PM plans offer low prices while the sun is shining and solar power is contributing to the power grid

Tap into Cleaner Energy with TOU

Cleaner energy sources like wind and solar help lower the environmental impact of the energy grid. The sun shines while most of us are at work and the wind blows while we’re asleep. With a TOU plan, you can potentially save energy and lower electricity bills by using renewable energy when it’s naturally available.

Along with using cleaner energy, find out how you can help the environment and potentially lower electricity bills by being more energy efficient.
