Small Business Owners in the United Illuminating Company Territory with Smart Meters: Time-of-Use Product Now Available

read | Share:

Small business owners with a smart meter in the United Illuminating service territory in Connecticut now have Time-of-Use (TOU) available to them. TOU programs are intended to help customers reduce their electricity usage during certain hours (or days) when the demand for electricity is high (i.e. on-peak). When used effectively, this allows customers to shift their usage to periods when the demand is lower (i.e. off-peak), and therefore, not as costly.

On Peak/Off Peak

With our current TOU offer, your electricity supply rate will be $0.1059/kWh from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. For all other hours, Monday through Sunday, will be billed at $0.0959/kWh. Customers will continue to be responsible for their utility distribution charges and applicable taxes. United Illuminating customers, view this offer

Benefits of a Smart Meter

A smart meter monitors your usage in more detail than a conventional meter and continuously communicates usage information to your local utility for monitoring and billing purposes. Smart meters are not available in all utility territories.

As a result of smart meter technology, Direct Energy Business is able to ensure the price its customers pay for electricity supply reflects the actual cost of electricity produced.
