Winter weekdays (November to March) are divided into peak and off-peak hours. Rates are higher during peak hours when demand is high.
- Save money at home by making small changes to energy use. Consider doing laundry over the weekend, setting the dishwasher to run overnight, or turning down the thermostat during peak hours.
- Control business costs through energy management. Consider shifting the use of high energy consuming equipment or managing electric heating and cooling to minimize use during peak hours.
- In the non-winter months (April to October) the price for electricity is less than the standard rate and does not change based on time of day.
This plan is designed for customers who can reduce or shift their energy use away from the two daily peak periods (7-11AM and 5-9PM), Monday to Friday during the winter. Weekends and statutory holidays are excluded, meaning they are off-peak.
