  • electric rates cheaper at certain times

    I live in Az. and between 9pm-9am the electric rates are cheaper also on Sat. & Sun. That is the time I wash & dry clothes. Also put on the dishwasher after 9pm. I never had this in any state I lived in but I do try to use those times. Anyone else have this system? My whole house is electric so we try to conserve as much as we can & use those times. Very strange when we moved back & electric co told me about it.

    Hmmm. Maybe I should check with TXU here and see if we have cheaper rates at certain times.........

          I live in AZ. and a/c is always on so I am on a budget for $170 a month. We did get new a/c units last yr. Have a ranch style house with 2 a/c units plus keep them at 77 degrees. Old units we were over $500 a month in summer time now it is about $350 a month with the new ones, this is summer time. We can reach over 110-120 degree days in the summer so you know those units are working.

            I'm going to check with Alabama power. I went on a budget billing last year. I pay $333.00 a month. when the weather went into triple digets last summer, my bill was $456.00 , I had been on the budget .I have noit turned on our central unit yet.DH has a small windowunit in the den, I am using ceiling fans and a floor fan, keeping the rooms darkened tow. so far It's comfortable.

              I heat with natural gas, and my appliances are gas ones, so my electric bill ranges from $25.00 in the winter and spring to $150 in the hottest summer months.

              The electric rates here are lower at night too, so in the rare case that I use my dishwasher, I set the timer so that it runs in the middle of the night.

                  Chop, I am on APS and it is crap. When I lived in AZ 13yrs ago we had load controllers that would modify the electric use at once. Then moved back to this crap. What happened to load controllers??? Do you remember them?? Wish we had another electric co that would compete with them. They raise their rates every yr. especially in March just before the summer heat.

                    All I know is that our electric bill is going up 17.00 a month to pay for all the damage the two ice storms left behind this past winter
