What is the right plan for you?

LG&E and KU understands that electricity usage varies by household – how many live in your home, your thermostat settings, how many loads of clothes you wash and so forth. We can offer you a choice of electricity rate plans to fit your household.

Manage your energy usage and charges

Based on how and when you use electricity, you may be able to save money on your power bill. Before you make a switch to a different rate, we encourage you to research the options below and contact us so we can help you find the rate that best complements your energy habits. Every house is different and your savings will depend on how much you are able to reduce your usage during on-peak hours and/or shift it to off-peak hours. If you do not shift the time of day that you use energy or you consume energy during on-peak times, your bill may go up.

Unlike standard electric rates where you are charged the same amount for electricity no matter when you use it, with Time-of-Day rates, electric charges vary based on the time of day and the season. This means when you use energy is just as important as how much you use.

There are two residential time of day rates available:

Energy Rate

With the Time of Day Energy Rate, you can save money based on the time of the day you use electricity.

Demand Rate

With the Time of Day Demand rate, you can save money based on the time of the day you use electricity and by avoiding the use of major appliances at the same time.

Off-Peak and On-Peak hours

On-Peak hours have a higher per kWh energy charge than Off-Peak hours. Choose your time zone for your time of day rates.

Understanding demand

A demand measure represents the amount of power the utility must generate to fulfill the customer’s power needs.
