Time of Use (TOU)
Time-of-Use rates mean the rate is higher at certain times of the day and much lower at other times. Depending on the time of year, the difference can be as much as 17 cents per kWh. The intent is to encourage electricity use during the lower cost time and discourage use during the higher cost times.
You can see how much electricity you use during each hour of the day in MyREC SmartHub.
Members interested in time-of-use rates should consider using a programmable thermostat and other energy management measures to maximize savings and minimize electricity use during on-peak hours.
