Weekends and most holidays are also considered OFF-PEAK hours.

With Time-of-Day Rate pricing, when a member-owner uses electricity is as important as how much electricity they use. The average residential time-of-day rate subscriber saves $35 per month on their electricity costs, however, they must shift their energy use to OFF-PEAK hours to achieve the most savings.

With the Time-of-Day Rate, follow these tips to make the most of your energy dollars:

  • Program your thermostat to avoid on-peak hours.
  • Do laundry and dishes during off-peak hours and install a water heater timer.
  • Avoid space heating and cooling.
  • Avoid use of electric stove, oven, and microwave.
