Time of Use Pricing Plans
It’s time to start thinking about energy differently.
New plans based on the time of day
To support the statewide commitment to reliable and sustainable energy, time of use pricing plans are the current standard for business and are being introduced to residential customers over the next few years.
These plans are based on both how much and when you use energy, and offer you more choices on how to better manage and control your energy costs.

Time of use pricing plans split the day into different time periods, on-peak and off-peak. During peak hours prices are higher as the demand for electricity increases and cost for producing and delivering electricity also increase.
By shifting energy use to off-peak times you can save on costs and also help decrease demand for energy which helps the environment.
Peak hours have been from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. But with the recent increase in renewable energy, primary solar, the hours of peak energy demand from the grid have shifted to 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. The shift is occuring because as the sun goes down, production from solar drops.
