Time Of Use Program

Time-of-Use Program

Save money on your electric bill by simply shifting when you use electricity. How? With Trico’s Residential Time-Of-Use (TOU) Rate Program.

How it Works
Trico’s regular rate for residential electric energy usage is $.121 per kilowatt hour (kWh) 24 hours a day/7 days a week. TOU customers have two separate rates for electric energy usage: $.0732 per kWh for off-peak hours; $.1932 per kWh for on-peak hours.

By shifting energy usage to off-peak hours when energy usage is billed at the lowest rate, TOU customers save money! A fixed monthly rate of $19 and the Power Cost Adjustor (PCA) still apply.

Is Time-Of-Use for You?
The TOU program is not for everyone. If you’re considering signing up for TOU, you need to carefully analyze how – and WHEN – you use energy.

In order to see a savings, the typical TOU customer must shift about 67 percent of their energy usage to off-peak hours. You may benefit from the TOU program if you:

  • Can shift most of your usage to off-peak hours.
  • Have low daytime electric use.
  • Don’t use air conditioning or can shift most A/C usage to off-peak hours.
  • Can operate major appliances such as water heater, pool pumps, or spa heaters during off-peak hours.

The Bottom Line
Trico encourages all participants to remain on the program for at least one year in order to see cost-savings benefits.
