More Options, More Control, More Chances to Save
Next-Day Pricing is a new energy pricing option that gives more accurate energy price
signals to businesses like yours, that want to control energy costs. The actual cost of
generating power varies on a daily basis, depending on the generation mix we must use
on a given day. (Coal generation, for example, is a lower cost than natural gas generation.)
Next-Day Pricing gives you clear, day-ahead price signals that match the actual market
pricing. This gives you the option to alter your electric load based on actual market
conditions. At the same time, Day-Ahead Pricing still incorporates a degree of price
certainty to protect you, by limiting the number of high-priced energy periods.
By 3:30 p.m. the day before, Next-Day Pricing let's you know the next day's energy
pricing, giving you the opportunity to adjust your electric load accordingly.
Next-Day Pricing energy rates fall into one of four categories — Economy, Mid-Economy,
Peak or Critical. Knowing those rates in advance gives you an opportunity to reschedule
energy-consuming tasks — away from Peak and Critical to Economy and Mid-Economy
times whenever possible. And that gives you the potential to save on your energy costs.
