Time-of-Day rate schedule changes Oct. 16

On Oct. 16, Roanoke Electric Co-op member-owners who participate in the co-op’s Residential Time-of-Day Rate are scheduled for a rate adjustment.

Participants in this program pay a lower rate for using energy during off-peak hours.

“As we prepare for a change in the seasons, we would like to remind participants that when they use electricity is just as important as how much they use,” said Basil Williams, the co-op’s manager of member services. “The voluntary program helps member-owners reduce their monthly electric bills by modifying their energy consumption patterns – saving participants, on average, $35 per month.”

Beginning on Oct. 16 and through April 16, on-peak hours when rates are higher, are 6:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., Monday-Friday.  From April 16 – Oct. 16, on-peak hours are 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 consumed.
