Half-Price Power

Garkane's Time-Of-Use Rate Program Called Half-Price Power

This program provides an opportunity to reduce your electrical bill. When you sign up for this program,

Garkane crews will replace your current meter with a new meter, that charges you $0.1025 kWh during peak times, and $0.0525

during off-peak times. The graphic below shows when these times occur. The base rate on this program is $27. 

This is for residential Utah consumers only. We are working on a commercial Time-of-Use rate, but it has not been approved yet. We are also working on a Time-of-Use rate for Arizona consumers, but that has not been approved yet by the Arizona Commission. 

  

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. How much can I save on my bill?

A. Each account is different and it depends on how much you are able to shift your power usage. Some members can save up to 20% on their bill.

 

Q. Why do I need a new meter?

A. Your current meter only tracks total kWh usage, the new meter collects usage on intervals on when electricity is used. Crews have to install a new time-of-use meter so it may take up to a couple of weeks to get the new meter installed. 

 

Q. Is there a cost to the program?

A. There is not a cost to sign up for the program. 

Your minimum bill will remain at $35, but the base rate moves from $22 to $27. 

 

Q: Can I drop out of this program anytime? 

A: The program is voluntary and members may opt out of the program at any time. However we encourage you to try the program for 12 months to realize the potential benefits. Due to the cost of the new meter, if the member opts out of the program, he/she will not be able to re-enroll for at least 12 months. We also have a policy, that if your power is turned off because of delinquency or failure to pay, you will be removed from the program and only allowed to sign back up after 12 months.  

 

In signing this agreement, you are taking advantage of a special electrical rate offered by Garkane Energy Association.

This Time-Of-Use Rate is offered as an option for cooperative members. The Time-Of-Use rate will provide you an

opportunity to reduce your electrical bill.  The amount of money you can save over the standard residential electric rate

is dependent on your willingness and ability to shift electric use to off-peak times.  

 

Please be aware that Garkane Energy Cooperative does not guarantee or predict how long the Time-of-Use Rate

will be available to our cooperative members.  The structure of the rate is dependent on the power costs charged

by our wholesale power supplier.  This rate is subject to change at any time at the discretion of Garkane Energy Board of Directors.

 

By signing this you acknowledge that you understand the benefits and potential opportunities of the Garkane Energy Time-Of-Use rate.
