Time-Of-Use (TOU)

  • Our Time-Of-Use (TOU) program encourages residential customers to reduce electricity use during peak hours. Under the program, you will be charged for electricity depending on when you use it.
  • The rates are lowest on off-peak periods, when usage and the cost of electricity are low. Rates are higher during other periods, when usage and the cost of generating electricity are much higher.

What You Can Do to Save on This Rate!

  • Use automatic timers to avoid running appliances such as water heaters, pool pumps, hot tubs, de-humidifiers, etc. during peak times.
  • Install a programmable thermostat(s) to automatically adjust the temperature during peak times.
  • Plug computers, printers and televisions into power strips and turn off at the switch when not in use.
  • Wash and dry clothes off-peak
  • Avoid running the dishwasher during peak times. Remember not to start it close to a peak time as well.
