How the Program Works

How it Works

It costs the City of Wadsworth more for electricity during periods of high customer demand. Other factors, like weather conditions and the time of year, also impact these prices and can drive them higher. The Right Time Pricing plan is structured to allow you to save when we save – which is why you'll only pay approximately $0.6 per kilowatt hour (kWh) during off-peak hours in the fall, winter and spring months.

Look below and you'll see that the Right Time Pricing Winter season has its days split into two periods: On-Peak and Off-Peak. Each period has a fixed price assigned to it. You're charged for your usage* when it occurs:

Winter (October to May)

  • On-Peak: 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.
  • Off-Peak: 8 p.m. - 10 a.m.
Off-Peak rate applies to weekends and holidays.
