Roanoke Electric Co-op plans to adjust its Time-of-Day rate schedule on April 16 to reflect the change in seasons.
On-peak hours, during which member-owners participating in the program are charged a higher rate for energy used, will be 2 p.m.- 6 p.m., Monday-Friday. All other time periods are considered off-peak, when participants will be charged a lower rate for energy used.
“The Time of Day rate program is a great option for member-owners,” said Tammy Piland, the co-op’s billing coordinator. “The rate incentive encourages them to do their tasks, such as water heating, laundry, cooking, etc., during the off-peak, lower-rate periods. The reward is a lower monthly electric bill.”
