On this rate, your monthly electric bill will be based on how much electricity you use, as well as when you use it for the distribution portion of your bill and the supply portion if you purchase supply from BGE. You may switch to a third-party supplier at any time on this rate schedule. If you purchase your electric supply from a third-party supplier, you will continue to be charged your third-party supplier rate for supply and you will be charged the TOU rates for distribution. The more you can shift usage to lower priced time periods, the more it is possible to save. Enrollment may take up to two billing cycles to become effective.
The Distribution and Supply Time of Use rate is optional and offers customers another opportunity to save on their energy bill. When customers reduce their use during peak hours or shift their energy use to off-peak hours you can see savings on your energy bill.
Managing your thermostat has the greatest impact on your energy bill. Using a smart or programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature a few degrees during peak hours can make a difference.
