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 are on-peak, while nights, early mornings, weekends, and holidays are off-peak. With Time-of-Day Pricing, you can choose from three optional off-peak time periods, depending on your schedule.
