Time of Day Rate
During the course of every day, there is a period of time referred to as the "peak." This time of day is when electric usage is at its highest. Our highest usage times, between 2 p.m. – 10 p.m., are driven by businesses and manufacturing plants and the needs of individuals as they settle into an evening at home. Members with all-electric homes or those who use baseboard electric heat can save money by switching to United Power's Time-of-Day Rate.
After 10 p.m., our members' demand for electricity begins to drop. United Power offers substantial savings as an incentive to members willing to shift their electric use from the peak daytime hours into the lower demand evening hours. Members on the United Power Time-of-Day Rate enjoy significant savings over households utilizing the standard electric rate.
