The Time-of-Use (TOU) rate option offers you a lower rate for electricity when demand on our system is low, balanced with a higher rate when demand on our system is high. You save money by shifting your energy consumption to times when demand is low. It’s easier than you might think.

There’s a three-hour window on weekdays during the winter, and a four-hour window on weekdays during the summer, when you should avoid using high wattage appliances and adjust your thermostat. Installing a timer on your water heater and adding a programmable thermostat to your HVAC system can go a long way in making saving simple. By shifting your energy use from the hours of 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays in the winter, and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays in the summer, you’ll lower your bill because you’ll pay a lower rate than our standard rate all other times, and a much lower rate from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. all year-round.
