How it works
This plan rewards predictability in your business’s energy use.
Your energy charge is calculated using “stretcher blocks,” which means the price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) decreases as your kWh consumption increases relative to your electric demand (kilowatts used).
Stretcher block pricing works best for business customers that can keep their energy use as stable or as flat as possible — avoiding spikes in demand.
See how prices are calculated in each stretcher block and the additional charges you can expect on this plan.
In addition to per-kilowatt-hour charges, demand charges and a service charge apply. They are as follows:
- Summer demand charge: $4.92
- Summer peak demand charge: $7.29
- Winter demand charge: $4.56
- Monthly service charge: $22.72 plus meter charge (CT/PT $16.88 or demand/non-demand $6.11)
Note that the demand charge applies to all kW greater than 5 kW for the highest demand during on-peak hours, and max demand during shoulder and off-peak hours. The overall price will decrease with lower kW demand. The higher the load factor, the lower the price per kWh.

How is this plan different from General Service Time-of-Use?
The biggest difference is that the General Service price plan is designed for businesses that use energy in predictable and stable amounts. The Time-of-Use price plan allows for more variability.
