Time-of-Use Rates

If approved by City Council in November, Fort Collins Utilities will transition to Time-of-Use (TOU) electric rates for all residential customers on Oct. 1, 2018. (Exact rates are not yet known; specific rates will be posted in late November/early December.)

With a TOU rate, when you use electricity is as important as how much electricity you use. The price you pay changes based on the time of day, the day of the week and the season.

TOU pricing for electricity is similar to the way you pay for many other products and services. For instance, when you go to a movie during the day, you pay a lower price for the matinee when demand is lower than you do at night when demand is higher. Likewise, if you book an airplane ticket during the summer, you'll pay more than traveling in the winter.
