The provincial government is trying to control when you use your electricity by imposing a new electricity pricing plan known as Time-of-Use Pricing. With Time-of-Use Pricing, the rate you are charged for electricity varies depending on when you use it.
|Peak Period||Winter (From Nov 1 to Apr 30)||Summer (From May 1 to Oct 31)|
|Off-Peak||7pm to 7am||7pm to 7am|
|Mid-Peak||11am to 5pm||7am to 11am and 5pm to 7pm|
|Peak||7am to 11am and 5pm to 7pm||11am to 5pm|
Note: Mid-Peak and On-Peak hours in the summer are flipped in the winter. Sound confusing? That's because it is!
If you are like most Canadian households, you will consume a good portion of your electricity within On-Peak and Mid-Peak hours.
