What is Real Time Pricing?
Real Time Pricing is the time-based rate for Residential and General Service electric rates. The time-based rate defines on-peak, off-peak and the super o-peak hours. The charge for electricity is higher during on-peak hours than it is during off-peak or super off-peak hours. NineStar on-peak hours are 5pm-8pm Monday – Friday.
- Rates will be the lowest during “super o-peak” hours between 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.
- The “off-peak” hours will be 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.
- Electricity prices will be highest during “on-peak” hours between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (excluding
holidays) when demand for energy and the cost of meeting that demand is greater.
