Time of Use Tips & Ways to Save with TOU
Once you find the rate plan that works best for you, saving with Time of Use (TOU) is easy. You just need to know the following:
Which devices require the most electricity (this is easier than you think).
The times of day you can take advantage of Super Off Peak (cheaper) hours.
The habits or new technology you can use to better manage your electricity usage.
The "Best Deal" on Electricity
What is Time of Use (TOU)?
The new Time of Use (TOU) rate plans let you take advantage of the hours of the day when energy is less expensive for us to produce so you pay less too. Just like riding the LIRR at off-peak hours, you can now pay for electricity the same way. Because energy production costs can range as much as 70% at different times of the day (peak, off-peak and super off-peak hours), choosing a TOU rate plan can be a less expensive alternative to other rates.
