Time-of-Use savings program

Time-of-Use can save money on your electric bill if you can use some large appliances on evenings and weekends rather than weekdays.

  • Electricity price is lower when energy demand is low (off-peak)
  • Electricity price is higher when demand is high (on-peak)

The more you shift large electric appliance (such as space- and water-heating equipment) use to off-peak times, the more you save. However, you pay more than you would with standard price if you do not shift enough electricity use to off-peak times.

Off-peak times: Early mornings, nights, weekends and holidays (65% of week hours are off-peak).
On-peak times: Weekdays of chosen time period (35% of week hours are on-peak).
