What Our New Summer Time of Use Rate Means for You
Beginning in June, you will transition to our new summer Time of Use rate, and we want you to be prepared. To help you understand what this means for you, we've created a new, personalized bill impact tool based on your summer 2018 electric use. This tool is available online and will help you see how small changes in your routine can make a big impact on your bill.
Our new summer Time of Use rate is part of a statewide effort to reduce energy use when demand is highest – on summer weekdays between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. With this new rate, when you use energy is just as important as how much you use. By shifting your energy use outside the hours of peak demand you could lower your bill.
We provide in-person utility safety training and guides so first responders are well prepared to respond safely to related emergencies. Because when emergencies involve our infrastructure—natural gas pipelines, electric lines and other assets—it’s important public safety officials understand potential electric and natural gas hazards. Contact our Public Outreach Team to learn more or to request the electric and natural gas first responder guides.
Joining Forces With Public Safety
Our Public Safety Outreach team works with public safety officials to ensure coordination and effective emergency response during utility related emergencies. This coordination can include providing an Incident Command System (ICS) trained liaison to your Emergency Operations Center to align on priorities and ensure effective communications.
