Ways to Save: Time-of-Use Rates

If you can shift using high energy users – such as air conditioning and electric water heaters – to off-peak hours, time-of-use rates may be for you.

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

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 to only 7.35 cents per kilowatt hour. The normal residential rate is 8.81-11.66¢ per kilowatt hour. The monthly service charge for Time-of-Use members is $23 per month.

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