Select the Best Rate for Your Large Business

If your company uses more than 500 kW per month, these general service rates are available. A Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate may be the best choice if the majority of your electricity usage occurs outside the peak hours of 12 noon to 6 p.m. on weekdays. For more information about any of these rates, call 1-800-655-4555 to speak with an energy consultant.
