Fixed Time of Delivery

Take advantage of our lowest energy rate

Looking to save money? The Fixed Time of Delivery Rate delivers electricity during the same 8-hour period every day—and lets you save big all year long.

How it works

Our Fixed Time of Delivery Rate delivers electricity to your home for 8 hours a day only, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., when energy demand is low, allowing you to take advantage of low-priced energy.

This rate works primarily with thermal-storage systems. These systems recharge and store energy—for example, thermal-storage heating systems store heat in sand or specially designed bricks—during the time that your home receives electricity. They then use this stored energy to heat or cool your home throughout the day and early evening.

As a result, you’ll enjoy a rate that is less than half the standard price for electricity.

If you don’t currently have a thermal-storage system and would like to install one, rebates are available.

Program eligibility and details

You must have a permanently connected deferred load (primarily thermal storage). Your thermal-storage system must be able to store enough energy to meet the conditions of this rate.
