The Time-of-Day Energy rates enable customers the opportunity to shift their load to off-peak times and potentially lower their monthly bill.

Energy Charges

The Time of Day Energy Charge recovers the operating costs incurred to provide the amount of electricity (kWh) consumed during the billing period.

“Infrastructure” is the rate comprised of costs associated with meeting system demand that do not fluctuate directly with energy usage, as well as the portion of fixed customer-related expenses not recovered in the Basic Service Charge.

“Variable” is the rate comprised of costs, such as fuel, that fluctuate with the production of energy used by customers.
