Beat The Rush
Sometime in 2019, everyone in San Diego will be converted to the TOU (time of use) schedule. What does this mean to you?
Electricity prices will be more expensive depending on what time of the day it is.
The most important change is SDG&E’s new hours for peak pricing in time of use (TOU) rate schedules: 4pm – 9pm, adjusted from previous peak hours of 11am – 6pm.
For most customers, this change can increase prices DRAMATICALLY!
You pay almost double the price for using the same amount of electricity during On-Peak (4 p.m. – 9 p.m.) compared to Super Off-Peak (12 a.m. – 6 a.m.).
Don’t be fooled by SDGE, they claim that this new rate structure is in place to save consumers money. While in reality, time of use is being implemented to control electricity consumption behavior patterns.
