If you’re a California customer of PG&E, having a flexible schedule is actually a great way to manage your energy costs.
As part of a statewide effort, many PG&E customers will be moving to the Time-of-Use (Peak Pricing 4-9 p.m. Every Day) rate plan where you can manage energy costs and help the environment by shifting what time of day you use big appliances like dishwasher and washing machines. Being a bit more thoughtful in how and when you use electricity-hungry appliances can help keep your energy costs down and create a healthier environment. Just a few small shifts in your routine can make a big difference! Every PG&E customer has the option to pick a Time-of-Use rate plan at any time.
A great rule of thumb to remember: morning to mid-day electricity use utilizes renewable resources, like solar, and cost less so it’s the best time to run appliances.
