Take control of your electric bill by choosing the pricing plan that is right for you.

Tucson Electric Power offers four unique plans that give residential and small commercial customers the ability to reduce their bills by changing their energy usage habits. With these pricing plans, you can choose to save energy and lower your bill.

Two of the plans include time-of-use rates that offer discounts for usage during off-peak hours. And two of the plans pair reduced energy charges with a “demand” charge that rewards customers who can limit their concurrent use of large appliances during on-peak hours.

No action is required of customers who want to stay on their current pricing plan.
