What kind of savings might I expect from TOU?

The dollar amount that you may potentially save varies among members. The more electricity you shift to off-peak times, the more money you save. A group of 56 members have already tried out this rate for a year.

The average reported savings over the standard rate during the pilot program were:

  • Electric heated homes: 10% savings
  • Gas heated homes: 7% savings
  • Geothermal heated homes: 11% savings.

The TOU rate was designed to offer savings to members that use 75% or more of their total electricity usage off peak.
