One Part Real Time Pricing (RTP)

Real Time Pricing tariffs are electricity prices that vary hourly according to Nova Scotia Power's varying cost of generation. This provides customers an opportunity to reduce electricity costs by managing their consumption to take advantage of lower priced electricity during off-peak periods (overnight, weekends and holidays).

Availability

Real Time Pricing Tariffs are available to customers who have loads of 2,000 KVA or 1,800 KW and over.

Demand Charge
