Time of Use Plans Help You Control Your Energy Costs
Our Time of Use (TOU) plans are based on both how much and when you use energy, and offer you more choices to better manage and control your energy costs.
Who are these plans for?
A TOU plan is a good choice if:
Most of your electricity use can be shifted to before 4 p.m. and after 9 p.m.
How do these plans work?
TOU plans take into account the time of day you are using energy, which allows you two ways to save – by shifting your electricity use to lower cost hours of the day or by reducing your overall usage. During the on-peak hours of 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., increased demand on the electric grid means a higher cost to produce and deliver electricity. So, by shifting your use to off-peak hours, when there is less demand, the cost of electricity is less .
Here are the three TOU plans at-a-glance:
Time of Use (TOU-DR1): Electricity costs less during off-peak and super off-peak times.
- Time of Use (TOU-DR2): Electricity costs less during off-peak times.
- Time of Use Plus (TOU-DR-P): Electricity costs are less year-round except on Reduce Your Use days when a higher price is charged due to increased demand on the grid. By lowering your use during these times, you may save even more.
