Get RateWise For Your Home

Energy is priced per kilowatt-hour (kWh), and the monthly energy and delivery charges you are billed each month are based on the total amount of energy used, as recorded by your electric meter. Depending on when you consume energy, a couple of RateWise options exist for our residential customers.


RateWise Time-Of-Use rate is based on not only your energy usage, but also when you use it. If you currently consume most of your energy during our off-peak and super off-peak periods or are able to shift some of your usage to those periods, you could see savings on your monthly bill. All time-of-use periods are Central Standard Time (CST).

The monthly energy and delivery prices you are billed each month will be based on the total amount of energy consumed during each timeframe as recorded by your electric meter.
