Sign Up for Jackson EMC’s Time-of-Use Rate

Making small changes to when you use energy—such as cooling your home or doing laundry—could help you save on your electric bill.

By signing up for Jackson EMC’s Time-of-Use rate, you can take advantage of a year-round lower electric rate by reducing your energy use between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m. on weekdays from June 1 to September 15.

Reducing your energy use during summer peak periods helps us control the higher costs of producing electricity in the summer. The Time-of-Use rate is an option for people who can shift some of their peak energy use – such as air conditioning– to off-peak hours.

During peak periods (3 to 8 p.m. on weekdays, excluding the Independence Day and Labor Day holidays, between June 1 to September 15), the cost of electricity per kilowatt hour will be 34.35 cents for participating members.

During off-peak periods, the cost lowers significantly for Time-of-Use participants to only 7.35 cents per kilowatt hour. The normal residential rate is 8.81-11.66 cents per kilowatt hour. The monthly service charge for Time-of-Use members is $26per month.

To participate, sign up by May 1. Register by calling 1-800-462-3691 or visiting your local Jackson EMC office.
