It looks like the Time of Use charges haven’t changed much 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: 9.4 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!
