Residential and small business customers can now choose between a Time-of-Use (TOU) or Tiered pricing structure as of November 1, 2020.

With TOU the day is divided into 3 price periods: off-peak, mid-peak, and on-peak, and the price you pay depends on when you use electricity. With Tiered prices, you can use a certain amount of electricity each month at a lower price. Once that limit is exceeded, a higher price applies.

For customers already on TOU who wish to continue being billed with the TOU pricing no action is required.

Summer Tiered Price

Up to 750 kWh per month

$/kWh

0.098

Consumption beyond 750 kWh

$/kWh

General Service customers with consumption in excess of 250,000 kWh are subject to hourly electricity pricing. Customers with an interval meter pays the hourly spot price; customers who do not have an interval meter pay the weighted wholesale price. In addition, a customer on hourly electricity pricing has a separate line item on their bill called global adjustment.
