What Is The Time Of Use Plan?

Time of Use (TOU) is a plan that is proved by the utility companies based on when property owners consume their electricity. It factors in the cost of electricity that so distributed to the home/business throughout the day, where the peak hours cost a higher price while non-peak hours cost a lower price. Although some utilities in California already offer an opt in TOU rate, once a home goes solar, it is incorporated into their NEM (Net Energy Metering) billing plan.
