LD-2-B Time-of-Use Service Rate

  • The time-of-use (TOU) rate gives you the advantage of lower electric rates during the night and early morning hours, weekends, and the winter months.
  • The highest rate time-period (peak period) is 8:00 AM through 8:59 PM Mondays through Fridays.
  • The high-season rate is used for meters read monthly during the months of July through October. The low-season rate is used for meters read monthly during the months of November through June.
  • This rate option may require a meter change. There will be no GWP charge for the installation of the new meter. However, if the electric panel for your service does not accommodate a socket meter, you will need to hire an electrician to upgrade the panel. Our Electric Meter Shop personnel will be able to evaluate this for you.

How do you know if you should consider TOU rates?

If you can arrange your electric usage patterns in such a way that a majority of your electric usage occurs during the lower rate, BASE period hours, or if your present usage pattern is structured in that manner, then this rate could be the appropriate choice for you.

Customer Owned Generation

  • Rates LD-2-C (Customer Owned-Generation-Standard) and LD-2-D (Customer-Owned Generation-Time-of-Use) are available to customers who own and operate photovoltaic or wind powered electric generation systems and who are otherwise eligible and remain eligible for rate LD-2-A or LD-2-B.

Participation in this rate is on a first-come-first served basis until the time that the total rated generating capacity used by eligible customer generators in all customer classes exceeds 2.5 percent of GWP's aggregate customer peak demand.
