Time of Day

Our Time of Day options in Utah and Idaho can help you save money if you can move a substantial portion of your electricity use to off-peak hours. Under this option, the price you pay for electricity depends on when you use it.

A special meter is required for customers who participate in Time of Day.

    Utah

    You can save money by significantly reducing your energy use on weekdays in the summer between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.

    You'll pay lower prices on all other off-peak hours. Some holidays that fall on weekdays are also considered off-peak hours all day.

    Pricing

    With Time of Day, your basic service rates still apply. You also pay:

    • 1.6334 cents less than your basic service rate (Schedule 1 or Schedule 3) for each kilowatt-hour (kwh) of electricity used during off-peak hours
    • 4.3560 cents more than the basic service rate for each kwh of electricity used during on-peak hours

    Most customers would need to limit their on-peak usage to less than 24 percent of their total electricity usage, in order to save money on this option.

    As you think about how to shift electricity use to lower-priced, off-peak times, you should also consider how to reduce the overall amount of electricity you use each month.
