What Exactly is Time of Use?
Learn about how TOU Rates and Brightbox™ can work together
“TOU” is short for Time of Use electricity rates. These rates are set by your local utility and they vary by time of day: more expensive during periods of peak demand and less expensive during low demand periods. For instance, TOU rates would be higher during hot summer afternoons or nights when people tend to use their A/C more. Conversely, TOU rates would be lower during low demand periods like the hours during your workday when you’re not home.
One way to minimize your costs is to adjust your electricity usage to cheaper times. But there’s an easier way. Enter Brightbox, your very own home backup energy management system. With Brightbox you can avoid the most expensive rates under a TOU rate structure.
