TIME OF USE changes twice a year. Saving the most money you can on utilities is a great way to cut out some expensive bills coming in.
It looks like the Time of Use charges have decreased since the last chart came out.
Here is the TIME OF USE CHART to save all the money you can on your HYDRO bill!
The peak and off-peak rates effective May 1 and November 1 are.
Green: 6.5 cents/off-peak
Yellow: 9.5 cents/mid-peak …
Orange: 13.2 cents/on-peak
Using your hydro during on-peak is twice as costly as off-peak. Cut your hydro bill by using your dishwasher/washer/dryer/appliances, etc. during off-peak hours.
Always start your dishwasher and do laundry after 7 at night or on weekends or holidays to save money. Air conditioners are one of the biggest expenses you can have. Use them only when necessary to save money.
Here are some tips to cut those electricity bills. Check out Hydro’s Residential Conservation page for tips!
HOLIDAY TIME OF USE
Holidays are the best time to get those extra chores done if you need to run appliances, or electricity for them. Here is a list of holidays that are charged off-peak prices during the year.
Electricity used on weekends and holidays is charged the off-peak price during both the Winter and Summer periods.
Off-peak prices are in effect on the following 2017 holidays:
