Time-of-Use Rates

Time-of-Use Rates ~ Time It Right and Save

Beginning in May 2019, PWC will implement Time-of-Use Rates for residential and small commercial electric customers. These rates will be more in line with how we have to purchase power from Duke Energy – at higher rates during peak hours, when consumers typically use more power.

Right now, you can start to plan and get in practice (TOU tips), so you can take advantage of Time-of-Use Rates to lower your electric bills by conserving and shifting consumption from peak to off-peak hours. Rates for electricity used during off-peak hours will be 30% lower than during peak times.

Summer Peak Hours

April – October from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM (Mon. – Fri.)

Winter Peak Hours

November – March from 6:00 AM – 10:00 AM (Mon. – Fri.)

**Note that only four hours of the day are considered peak times; 20 hours each day – and all day on weekends and holidays – are off peak
