Time of Use Pricing

For Residential

Pricing periods

Time of Use pricing is different for different times of the day. We call these periods:

  • On-peak (times when demand is high)

  • Mid-peak

  • Off-peak (times when demand is low)

Your bill includes these electricity charges plus other charges that apply to all PGE customers, such as a basic charge, distribution charge and supplemental adjustments. See the residential rate tariff for more information on all the charges included on your bill.

Time of Use rates also include a 0.36 cent per kWh credit for the first 1,000 kWh used. This credit is not applicable to separately metered Electric Vehicle Time of Use option.

Times and seasons

Time of Use pricing periods differ seasonally, because people use power differently in winter than in summer, which changes high-demand times.

*New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas
Time of Use is best if you use most of your electricity late at night or on weekends. If not, you will not benefit from this plan.
