Nights & Weekends Max Plan

Three time periods with different prices—with the largest difference between peak and off-peak overnight time periods

Lower prices most of the day, with the highest peak price and overnight discount

This plan is similar to the Nights & Weekends Plan with three time periods, but has a larger increase between peak and super off-peak times. This means the plan requires the most effort to shift energy use, but you can save more if you're avoiding energy use during peak times and using energy overnight (to charge an EV, for example).

To avoid paying a higher price for energy during peak periods, it's smart to shift energy use to mornings, overnight or weekends all-year-round with this plan. Peak prices occur all year (instead of just the summer months) with this plan, which also means savings opportunities all year if you're able to shift energy use to avoid peak times.

Savings level
To save money, a lot of energy-shifting effort and flexibility is needed throughout the year.

How is this plan different?
This plan offers the most savings opportunities for those who can use energy outside of 4-8 pm and often use energy later at night. This plan was created with EV owners in mind, since EVs are often charged overnight.

Avoid peak hours by spreading out energy use on weekdays

Energy use is at its highest between 4-8 pm (peak hours) on the weekdays, which is why timing is everything when it comes to energy costs. Because we're able to match the cost you pay with actual costs to produce energy, you can save the most when you avoid peak times on weekdays (because that's when energy production is at its highest, like a "rush hour").

Helpful saving tips

We want to offer helpful tips and savings information along the way. Here are some smart ways to save on this plan and make sure it fits with your lifestyle!

EV: If you have an electric vehicle, set it to charge overnight.

Laundry: Wash clothes on cold—they get just as clean and save energy. You can also run your dryer later on weekday evenings or anytime on the weekends and holidays to avoid 4-8 pm peak prices. 

Dishwashing: Run full loads and wait until peak hours end on weekdays (or anytime on weekends).

Cooling: Set your thermostat to cool your home a few degrees lower before peak hours begin. It's also helpful to turn your thermostat a few degrees higher in the summer and lower in the winter during peak hours on weekdays. 
Tip: Smart thermostats can do this for you (both Nest and ecobee have time-based plan settings)!

With this plan, we’ll email you weekly coaching reports to show how you’re doing (with even more saving tips). You can also view your online personalized energy management dashboard anytime for a deeper understanding of when your usage is highest and what uses the most energy in your home.
