With the Time of Day Energy Rate, you can save money based on the time of the day you use electricity. LG&E and KU can generate electricity for less during evenings, nights and weekends, so the savings are passed on to you during these economy pricing periods. So, by operating appliances during off-peak hours, you would lower your energy usage, which could save you money.
