Time of Use
You could save If you charge an electric vehicle overnight, or use most of your electricity at night or on weekends, this plan may lower your electricity costs.

How it works

The rate is lower on nights and weekends and higher at high-demand times such as weekday mornings and evenings. See pricing details.

If you don’t use electricity primarily on nights and weekends, you may pay more on Time of Use than on the Basic Service rate.

Review the conditional guarantee and eligibility and limits.
