SAVE MONEY BY USING ELECTRICITY OFF-PEAK
The time-of-use (TOU) rate is a relatively simple concept - rates are lower when demand for electricity is low, but costs increase when demand is high. On the TOU rate, you pay more for electricity when it's used during time of high demand (on-peak hours) and less when it's used during the other hours of the day with lower demand (off-peak hours).
WHAT DOES ON-PEAK MEAN?
- On-peak refers to the hours during the day when electricity is most used and more expensive.
- GCEA's on-peak hours occur between 5 P.M. and 10 P.M. Monday through Saturday. Sundays are off-peak all day.
- TOU rates give you another tool to reduce your costs and energy consumption by shifting your energy use to off-peak hours.
RESIDENTIAL SINGLE-PHASE TOU RATE:
|On-Peak Energy Charge $0.23200 per kWh|
|Off-Peak Energy Charge $0.08800 per kWh|
|Monthly Service Availability Fee $35.00|
RESIDENTIAL THREE-PHASE TOU RATE:
|On-Peak Energy Charge $0.27300 per kWh|
|Off-Peak Energy Charge $0.08900 per kWh|
|Monthly Service Availability Fee $60.00|
If you want to take charge of your power bill, by using less energy during on-peak times, the time-of-use rate might be something to consider.
