how to save
​saving is as easy as Shift, Stagger & Save!
With this plan, you have the Shift, Stagger & Save options to help you save energy and money.
  • Shift the use of appliances to off-peak hours when energy is lower priced. For example, set your dishwasher to run on a delay cycle and put your pool pump on a timer to run after 7pm weekdays.
  • Stagger the use of major appliances (air conditioner, electric water heater, dryer, oven) during on-peak hours. The more you stagger, the more you save on the demand component.
  • Save energy and money on your overall usage by taking advantage of some basic energy efficiency programs, tips and tools. For example, take advantage of one of our rebate programs, set your thermostat a few degrees higher in the summer and lower in the winter and take our quick and easy Energy Analyzer survey to get an energy-savings report customized for your home.

​APS customers save with Combined Advantage 7pm-noon
  • "We moved to Phoenix from Flagstaff about nine years ago and the customer service team at APS reviewed our past energy use and suggested the Combined Advantage plan (demand rates). We were given simple tips to adjust our energy usage so we could save more money. We do laundry and dishes during off peak hours and adjust our a/c to 79 degrees. We cook dinner whenever we want to, but avoid using multiple appliances at once during on peak hours. And we are saving energy overall by installing LED bulbs throughout the house. Our monthly bill has never been lower."

  • "My family saves money on the Combined Advantage (demand rates) plan. We have our pool pump set to clean at night and i do the dishes and laundry in the morning or later in the evening. It's easy to manage, even our three kids do it with no problem. After a while it just becomes natural to use the appliances at different times in the day."
