Sign Up Now for Time-of-Use Rate

Making small changes to when you use energy could help you save on your electric bill. And with Jackson EMC’s Time-of-Use rates, your commitment to energy conservation can go a long way to trimming your energy costs.

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. If you can shift using higher energy users—such as air conditioning and electric water heaters—to off-peak hours, the Time-of-Use rate may be for you.

For participating members, Jackson EMC installs a meter that logs all energy used during peak and off-peak periods. 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. 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 $26 per month.

To participate this summer, sign up by May 1. Members who sign up after May 1 will begin Time-of-Use rates next summer. Register by calling 1-800-462-3691 or visiting your local Jackson EMC office.
