We have the option into enroll in time rate billing. The short is they charge and extra 3$ a month then $5.17 per Kw for the highest 15 minute (average) usage for the billing cycle. Then peak charge is $0.077 and off peak is $0.062 per KWh.

At some point EV charging will become the majority of our electrical usage. I have access to daily bar charts of my usage but I don’t have the actual data.

It seems to me without doing the math if one could keep the oven, dryer, and resistive heat strips off (that’s gonna be the killer I think but they can be on more than 5 minutes at 10kw so call it an average peak of ?????) and the steam shower 9kw one could really reduce the charcoal for you EVs.

Attached is my rate schedule and a snapshot of yesterday and today’s useage. To get Kw you need to multiply the kWh for the 15 minute interval by 4.

Is it worth it??

Anyone on time rate billing by choice or otherwise?

I can see as demand outpaces infrastructure the could be forced on rate payers or fixed rates increased to the point of making this the only choice.
