How Does Time-of-Day Pricing Work?

Shift Your Energy Use and Save

Time-of-Day Pricing offers three dayparts with different supply prices:

  • Off-peak (10 p.m. – 6 a.m.)
  • Peak (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. & 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.)
  • Super Peak (2 p.m. – 7 p.m.)

You could see potential savings on your energy bill by shifting use of electric appliances, such as your washing machine, dishwasher, or air conditioner, to times when demand is lower.
