This means that now more than ever, when you use electricity is just as important as how much you use. The following resources can help.
Agricultural Pumping Time-Of-Use Rate Periods
When you use electricity is as important as how much you use. For most agricultural and pumping rate options, there are three different TOU periods: on-peak (highest energy cost), mid-peak (medium energy cost), and off-peak (lowest energy cost).
The greatest demand on the grid is during on-peak periods. If you can shift energy use to off-peak or mid-peak times, you help reduce strain on the grid.

Time-Of-Use Agriculture and Pumping Super Off-Peak (TOU-PA-SOP)
In addition to our traditional TOU rates for agricultural and pumping customers, we offer specially designed rate options for customers with significant operating hours and flexibility: the Time-Of-Use Agriculture and Pumping Super Off-Peak rate (TOU-PA-SOP).
Unlike the traditional TOU rate, there is a shorter on-peak period and a shorter summer season. The winter season has two periods: off-peak from 6 a.m. to midnight and super off-peak from midnight to 6 a.m. The TOU-PA-SOP rates are designed to benefit agricultural and pumping customers who have high operating hours and can avoid the on-peak period entirely by shifting the entire operation to run only during the lower-cost super off-peak and off-peak time periods.
