PPL this week started offering " Time of Day Rates" for their electric generation part of the bill. I switched yesterday and was told it will start next billing cycle. Even the Peak Rate is cheaper then the rate they charge for people that didn't switch !! We'll just have to keep usage low during 5-7 pm to save more. The hot water heater is on a timer so that's easy. On the bad side I'm home before the wife and now she'll want me to cook !!

Well if you are going to be cooking the evening meals we will be over too :poke:

I am glad to hear PPL is offering some sort of program as they were one of the higher ones with raising the rates since the cap came off. We are with Met-Ed and their rates went up 2% so I guess it is still livable.

The economy is keeping the cost low , what I mean is not rising for now anyway.

I am with Penn Power (Ohio Edison etc...). I have an all electric house and the plan that I'm on (which is NLA to new customers as I understand it) cuts the rates drastically between October and April as long as the usage stays above a certain level. I don't have a problem staying above their minimum though.
