You could lower your bill by shifting when you use electricity

Introducing the Summer Peak Rate


As we work toward a cleaner energy future, we developed the Summer Peak Rate in collaboration with the Michigan Public Service Commission and other Michigan utilities. This is an update to our standard residential electric rate that encourages you to lower your bill by taking advantage of lower-cost electricity available at certain times of day.

Most customers will see less than a $2 increase in their monthly bill, without changing when or how they use electricity.

What is this New Rate?


With this new rate, when you use electricity can be just as important as how much you use.

The Summer Peak Rate includes a peak period from June 1 through September 30. The peak period consists of “on-peak” and “off-peak” rate prices:

  • “On-peak” rate price From 2 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, the electricity rate will be about 1.5 times higher than the “off-peak” rate price.
  • “Off-peak” rate price Customers will pay a lower rate price for electricity used outside of on-peak times and during the non-summer months of October through May.

We’re encouraging customers to save money by reducing electricity use during this on-peak time, or shifting use to mornings, nights and weekends.
