Maximize your savings with Time-of-Use rates

Time-of-Use rate plans are an option to help you save money on your electric bill by offering offer lower energy rates when energy demand is low.

The cost of electricity increases during peak times when usage and the cost of generating electricity are the highest. If you shift your electric usage to “off-peak” times, we can pass along the savings with a lower kWh charge in the Time-of-Use rate. "Off peak" times include all weekends, most holidays, and weekday hours except 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Tipmont REMC’s TOU rates are based on the time of day you use electricity and our cost of supplying electricity to you during that time. If you use electricity when the total used by all Tipmont members is low (off peak), your rate will be lower than the standard rate. On peak hours or periods of high demand will cost more than the standard rate.
