Time-of-Use Metering

IREA currently offers a Time-of-Use program to consumers taking service under the rate schedules as listed below. The on-peak hours are from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the off-peak hours are from 8 p.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Customers who are capable of reducing their electric consumption during the hours of 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily may be capable of reducing their monthly electric bill. As customer usage varies, an estimate of savings or recommendation as to whether the TOU rate would benefit a specific consumer is not possible to provide; however, a general statement would be that a customer would need to use 15% or less of their total daily consumption during the on-peak hours and 85% or more during the off-peak hours.

If you would like to sign-up for the TOU program or have further questions, please contact Michelle McAndrew at (303) 688-3100, Ext. 5497.
