Rate Changes
are coming.

In March 2019 (pending CPUC approval), business and agricultural and pumping Time-Of-Use (TOU) periods are changing. Businesses with service accounts under 200 kW and agricultural and pumping service accounts over 200 kW are also being defaulted to Critical Peak Pricing (CPP). CPP is already the default option for large businesses with service accounts over 200 kW.

Time-Of-Use (TOU) periods are changing.

As California continues to adopt cleaner resources to generate energy, the cost to deliver power throughout the day is changing. Energy is now less costly during midday and more costly in the late afternoon and evening. To align with these changing costs, TOU hours will change in March 2019 (pending CPUC approval). Check out the new TOU periods below.

Default to Critical Peak Pricing (CPP).

In March 2019 (pending CPUC approval), businesses with service accounts under 200 kW and agricultural and pumping service accounts over 200 kW will default to Critical Peak Pricing (CPP).

CPP is an optional rate that offers a discount on regular summer electricity rates in exchange for higher peak period prices during 12 “CPP events” per year between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. If your business is able to reduce its energy use away from CPP events, you can lower your overall costs.
