Time-of-Day Pricing

Did you know that you have electric rate options in Columbus? With our optional residential “Time-of-Day Pricing” plan, you can lower your bill by using electricity wisely and at the right time.

How Does Time-of-Day Pricing Work? 

Columbus Water & Light pays less for electricity during nights, weekends, and holidays; we pay more during weekdays. 

The standard residential rate charges the same amount for electricity regardless of when it is used. Optional Time-of-Day Pricing passes lower costs on to you when electricity is less expensive, and charges a premium when electricity is more expensive.   


What is Off-Peak and On-Peak? 

On-Peak refers to periods when electricity is the most expensive. Off-Peak is when electricity is the least expensive.

Weekdays (8:00 am - 8:00 pm) are on-peak, while nights, early mornings, weekends, and holidays are off-peak.
