Energy Management Tools
Stay Cool while Keeping Energy Costs down
Most customers are on a Time-of-Use plan where pricing is higher from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. On our most popular plan, TOU-DR1, the lowest priced energy is during the super off-peak hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on the weekdays and before 2 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
Switch off your electronic devices, such as computers and coffee pots, when not in use. Keep in mind, electronics in standby mode still draw power. Use a power strip to power down devices and appliances at one time.
Precool Your Home before 4 p.m.
Take advantage of lower priced energy by setting your A/C between 68⁰ and 74⁰ F before 4 p.m. During on-peak hours of 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., adjust your thermostat to 78⁰, health permitting.
Check Your Pricing Plan Options
Being on the right energy plan for your lifestyle can add up to real savings on your energy bill, especially if you can shift your energy use.

3 Ways to Cut Your Natural Gas Bill this Summer
Avoid Opening the Oven

Try no-heat meals, such as chicken or tuna salads, wraps, subs or cheese boards. There are even no-bake dessert recipes.
Give Your Dryer Time off
Consider outdoor line-drying on sunny, breezy days to save natural gas.
