Your energy rate is based on the time of day; use less energy and manage energy demand during on-peak hours, between 4pm-7pm weekdays, to save. This plan also has a monthly demand charge for the highest hour of usage during on-peak hours, 4pm-7pm weekdays.

Why is this plan right for me:
Customers who select this plan can manage their costs by shifting energy use to lower-cost off-peak hours and staggering usage during higher-cost on-peak hours, between 4pm–7pm weekdays. This plan could be a good fit if:

  • green check mark filled circle
    You use a lot of energy and can benefit from a lower energy rate, or
  • green check mark filled circle
    You have an average to larger sized home, or
  • green check mark filled circle
    You are willing to adjust when you use energy and manage energy demand during on-peak hours

Ways you could save money on this plan:
You can save money on this plan by shifting more of your energy use to lower-cost off-peak hours and staggering the use of major appliances like the washer & dryer, dishwasher and oven during higher-cost on-peak hours, between 4pm–7pm weekdays. Avoid using some major appliances during higher-cost on-peak hours and if you do use some of these appliances during on-peak hours, try not to run them at the same time.

  • Dishes icon
    Use the delay setting on your dishwasher to run after 7pm weekdays.
  • Washer icon
    Do your laundry after 7pm weekdays or on weekends.
  • Thermostat icon
    Pre-cool or pre-heat your home during lower-cost off-peak hours before 4pm, weekdays.
  • Do: Save the most by shifting some electricity use to lower-cost hours, before 4pm or after 7pm weekdays. If you use major appliances during higher-cost on-peak hours, between 4pm and 7pm weekdays, stagger usage across hours.
  • Don’t: Stack your usage all at once during on-peak hours, between 4pm and 7pm weekdays; this will increase your demand charge.

Here’s how this plan works:
On this plan, your monthly energy charge is based on the time of day and/or day of the week when you use energy, plus a monthly demand charge for your highest hour of usage during on-peak hours, 4pm–7pm weekdays. This plan has the lowest rates during all other off-peak hours.

  • This plan has different on-peak rates for summer months (May–Oct bills) and winter months (Nov–Apr bills).
  • Super off-peak hours provide the lowest off-peak energy rates during winter months (Nov–Apr bills), 10am–3pm weekdays (excluding off-peak holidays).
  • This plan also has lower off-peak energy rates on weekends and holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Cesar Chavez Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. If a holiday falls on a Saturday, the Friday before will be off-peak. If it falls on a Sunday, the Monday after will be off-peak. In years when Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fall on a weekday, they will also be off-peak holidays. (Weekends are always off-peak.)
  • Try the Energy Estimator to calculate your estimated energy usage or demand for the month and find ways to save. You can also review the approximate demand for a variety of home appliances.
  • A demand limiter feature automatically lowers the amount you are charged for demand when a rare, unusual spike in your use occurs during on-peak hours, 4pm-7pm weekdays. The demand limiter can be applied to your account one time in the summer months from May to October and you have up to three demand limiters in a calendar year.
