Peak Day Pricing
What is Peak Day Pricing?
The Peak Day Pricing transition schedule for many business and agriculture customers is below. Small and Medium Agriculture customers will not automatically transition to Peak Day Pricing but the rate option is still available.
Beginning November 2014, Small and Medium Business customers will automatically transition to Peak Day Pricing.
Beginning February 2011, Large Agriculture customers automatically transitioned to Peak Day Pricing.
Beginning May 2010, Large Commercial and Industrial customers automatically transitioned to Peak Day Pricing.
Customers have the ability to opt out of Peak Day Pricing by choosing an alternative time-of-use rate.
What is a Peak Day Pricing Event Day?
Customers who participate in Peak Day Pricing will experience between 9 and 15 Peak Day Pricing Event Days annually in addition to time-of-use pricing. On Peak Day Pricing Event Days, a surcharge is added to a portion of the peak period (i.e. from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.) which customers will pay in addition to their regular peak electric rate.
Peak Day Pricing customers also receive credits for electricity use between May 1 and October 31. Customers who conserve electricity during high demand hours and Peak Day Pricing Event hours can save money on their overall electric bills.
