Time-of-Use Program

You could save by shifting your usage

Under PPL’s time-of-use plan, you will pay more during on-peak times and less during off-peak times. This plan is called “time-of-use” because the price varies depending on what time it is. The pricing is for the supply portion of your electric bill.

If you can shift usage – such as doing laundry or running the dishwasher – to off-peak hours, you could save money.

How it works:

  • Electricity rates will be lower than the Price-to-Compare in the day, at night and on weekends and holidays.
  • The rate will be higher than the Price-to-Compare in the afternoon and early evening.
  • The peak hours and rates will change twice a year: on June 1 and Dec. 1. You'll remain on the time-of-use plan from season to season unless you cancel the time-of-use rate or choose an electricity supplier.
  • There are no enrollment or cancellation fees.
  • Most residential and small business customers are eligible, including net metering customers.
  • This program runs from June 1, 2019, to May 31, 2021.

This is a PPL plan. If you are shopping with an electricity supplier, you would need to switch from your current supplier to PPL. Whether you will save money will depend on your supplier’s current price and how you use electricity. Before deciding whether to switch, please contact your current supplier first and be sure to ask whether there are any early cancellation fees or penalties.
