FAQ: Commercial TOU
TOU rates refer to electricity prices, which vary based on when electricity is used. That includes by time of day, by day of week (weekdays versus weekend) and by season. TOU rates better reflect the way the electricity market works. During on-peak hours, when member demands for electricity are highest, the cost of providing electricity is greater than at off-peak hours, when member demand is lower. With the TOU service rate, your cost varies according to the period in which you use the electricity. If you use electricity when demand is high (on-peak), your cost will be higher. However, if you use electricity when the demand is low (off-peak), your cost will be lower.
Yes. The TOU rate is offered as an incentive to shift your electric use from peak to off-peak hours — particularly during the summer. Being on the TOU rate requires you to make adjustments in your daily routine. If you don't change your energy use patterns, you could pay more — or you may come out about even — on this rate. It's up to you to switch your electric use to the less expensive off-peak hours.
No. The schedule for delivering your electric bill will remain the same.
View your daily and hourly electric use online. Your electric bill will also show your total electricity use in each pricing period (on-peak and off-peak) over the billing period. Together, this will give you key information about when you are using the most electricity, and you will be able to see how your electricity use patterns affect your bills.
