Energy Saving Tips

Energy Saving Tips for Time of Use

Schedule at a Glance

NV Energy wants to make it simple for you to save money on your electric bill.

The NV Energy Time of Use (TOU) rate provides you with a choice. Customers who are willing to reduce consumption during periods when the total demand for electricity is highest, (the peak) will save money.

This peak is between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily, June through September, when the weather is hottest and electricity use is greatest.

You can see a break-down of the Time of Use rates in our Residential Rate Schedule.

If your time schedule allows you to use most of your energy during off-peak hours during the summer, you could save money.

Benefits of the Time-Of-Use Program:

  • There’s no risk in trying the TOU program for the first year due to the Guaranteed Lowest Rate* (GLR) feature.
  • Shifting your on-peak usage to mid-peak or off-peak will keep your rates down.
  • Preserves the environment.

Notice:  In order to participate in this TOU Rate program, you must allow NV Energy access to your electric meter. Participation, however, is not guaranteed - you must be pre-qualified.

Saving Energy with Time Of Use

  • If your home is generally unoccupied during peak hours, you may experience the greatest benefit from this program.
  • Use laundry machines, dishwashers, chargers, and others appliances during off-peak hours.
  • During warm months, set your thermostat to 78-80 during peak hours.
  • Keep unneeded lights off during peak hours.
  • Consider joining the NV Energy Smart Thermostat Program.
  • If you have or are considering to add solar generation to your home, you may experience added benefit from this program.
  • You can find more energy saving tips here.

Guaranteed Lowest Rate (GLR)*

If after the first 12-month period, we find that you have spent more on the TOU Rate than you would have spent on the standard rate, we will refund the difference and restore you to the standard rate (if you choose). In order to receive the annual savings associated with being on the TOU rate, you are requested to remain on the program for a full 12 months.
