Time-of-Use Rate: Get Year-Round Savings When You Shift Energy Use
Looking for ways to save on your energy bill? You can save money throughout the year just by changing when you do your laundry, cool your home or wash your dishes during the summer. Jackson EMC’s Time-of-Use rate is an option for members who can use less energy during peak demand times in the summer.
With the Time-of-Use rate, your rate is lower on weekends, nights and mornings from June 1 to September 15. During peak hours (3 to 8 p.m. on weekdays) when electricity is most expensive, your rate is higher for using electricity. In the fall, winter and spring, you’ll pay a low, flat residential rate – regardless of when or how much electricity you use.
To reduce peak energy demand and save money, Jackson EMC created its Time-of-Use rate program to encourage electricity use during off-peak hours – when energy is less expensive to provide.
Using less on-peak power means lower costs for the co-op, and ultimately, lower rates for members.
Time-of-Use is an option for members who can significantly shift when they use electricity during the summer, especially using their air conditioner, washer and dryer and dishwasher. Sign up for the Time-of-Use rate by May 1 by calling 1-800-462-3691 or visiting your local Jackson EMC office.
