Time-Of-Use Rates for Agriculture and Pumping
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.
