Time of Use

Active after hours? Your business could save.

How it works

If your business uses most of its electricity at night and on weekends, our Time of Use plan may lower your electricity costs.

The Time of Use option is available non-residential customers on Schedule 32.

You pay different rates for electricity you use depending on the time of day, day of week and season.

Our cost for energy is typically lower at times when demand for energy is lowest – and we pass that savings on to you.

Keep in mind, though, that prices are higher for us when the demand for energy is highest – so they’re also higher on Time of Use. See pricing details.

You’ll benefit most from this option only if you can significantly shift your energy use from on- and mid-peak hours to off-peak hours. Otherwise, you are probably better off on Basic Service.

Review the conditional guarantee and eligibility and limits.

The Time of Use power supply is the same as with Basic Service.
