Remember, Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays are around-the-clock
Holidays include New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Good Friday, Memorial
Day (Day Observed), Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Friday
following Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
If the holiday falls on Sunday, then Monday becomes a savings day. If
the holiday falls on Saturday, then there will be no alternate savings day.
Each month, you pay a Fixed Charge that covers fixed costs associated with
billing and service.
When you apply for Time-of-Use, a WPS representative will replace your
existing meter with a special meter that measures the electricity you use during
Time-of-Use savings hours and peak-usage hours.
We ask that new Time-of-Use customers commit to the program for a minimum of 90 days.
Customers who leave the Time-of-Use program are not eligible to reinstate
Time-of-Use for one year.
Who saves most with Time-of-Use?
If less than 35 percent of your business's electricity use occurs during the hours when there's peak usage,
you'll save money with Time-of-Use. Your savings will continue to
grow as you increase the amount of electricity used during Time-of-Use savings hours,
instead of the more costly peak-usage hours.
Do you have an electric heating system? If so, you can achieve significant savings
under a Time-of-Use plan if you use either manual or automatic timing to limit operation
during peak-usage hours.
If you have an electric water heater, clothes dryer or range, limiting their use
during peak-use hours also will give your Time-of-Use savings a big boost.
Timers make it easy
Timers can make it easy to concentrate much of your electricity use during Time-of-Use
savings hours. For a modest price, you can purchase plug-in appliance timers at most
hardware, discount and home improvement outlet stores. Timers have the greatest impact
on electric bills when used to control dehumidifiers, second refrigerators, room air
conditioners and pool pumps during peak-usage hours.
