When you use electricity is just as important as how much electricity you use.

Most Californians are on a Time-of-Use (TOU) rate plan to support cleaner energy and a more reliable grid.

Many SJCE residential customers were automatically transitioned to TOU rates in June 2021. This means you pay lower rates before 4 p.m. and after 9 p.m. when there is more renewable energy on the grid. Paying attention to when we use energy lowers bills and creates cleaner air and healthier communities.
