Hydro Community Letter – December 2017
On November 1, Time-of-Use winter price periods came into effect. There are two peak periods during the winter months:
in the early morning and in the evening. During these times, increased space heating, lighting and appliance use is common.
Off-Peak (7 p.m. to 7 a.m. and all day weekends and holidays) – 6.5 cents/kWh
Mid-Peak (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) – 9.5 cents/kWh
On-Peak (7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) – 13.2 cents/kWh
With Time-of-Use rates, there is a financial incentive to conserve energy and to shift some consumption away from on-peak periods.
Try doing laundry, or running your dishwasher after 7 p.m. or on weekends to save!
