How Does Time-Of-Use Pricing Work?

Time-Of-Use (TOU) Pricing is an optional, generation-only rate for Advanced Metering Infrastructure metered, non-Customer Assistance Program, residential and small commercial customers. Time-Of-Use Pricing offers different supply prices at varying times of the day and week:

  • Peak Weekdays: (2 p.m. – 6 p.m.)
  • Off-Peak Weekdays: (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. & 6 p.m. – 12 a.m. )
  • Off-Peak Weekends and Holidays: (6 a.m. – 12 a.m.)
  • Super Off-Peak All Days: (12 a.m. – 6 a.m.)

(1) Participation requires choosing PECO for your electric supply. If you currently have an agreement with an alternative supplier, check your supplier contract or ask your supplier to see if there are any penalty/switching fees or cancellation fees before switching or cancelling.

(2) Holidays include New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day Observed.

You could see potential savings on your energy bill by shifting use of electric appliances, such as your washing machine, dishwasher, or air conditioner, to times when demand is lower.

Not sure if Time-Of-Use is right for you?

Time-Of-Use rates may not be appropriate for customers that cannot change the time of day that they rely on electricity, such as those with medical devices that require electricity or customers who are home during peak hours. If you are a low income customer, other programs and rate assistance may be available to help you afford your bill. Contact PECO at 1-800-494-4000 for more information and to apply.
