'Winter' Electricity Rates Now in Effect
If you have a smart meter, you'll want to know this.
Today is the day that the meters automatically turn to 'winter hours', which means peak pricing hours change.
Until April 30th, peak hours will run from 7 in the morning until 11 and then again in the afternoon from 5 till 7.
That means during those hours, you'll be paying 11.8 cents per kilowatt hour.
Between 11 and 5 each weekday is 9.9 cents per kilowatt hour.
Anytime between 7pm and 7am, you're paying 6.3 cents per kilowatt hour.
In the summer hours, the peak and mid peak flip meaning peak hours last between 11 and 5.
With the winter hours now in effect, if you do your laundry in the morning before work, you're going to be paying more.
