Small Commercial Time of Day Rate
Linn County REC offers an optional Small Commercial Time of Day rate that rewards members who use, or can move, electricity off of Linn County REC’s peak time which is 4:01 p.m. through 9:00 p.m., seven days a week including weekends and holidays.
Kilowatt demand is greatest during this peak time, potentially causing higher costs for your cooperative. By shifting usage away from this time period, Linn County REC can offer you a lower rate.
The best candidates have balanced year round usage, with on peak usage not greater than 20%. Each month the results of being on Time of Day will show on your billing statement.

Here is an example of a small single-phase commercial account showing the regular Small Commercial rate (3SCOM) and what it could be on the Small Commercial Time of Day rate (13TOD).
Total savings for the month using 2000 kilowatt-hours (kwh) with 20% on peak would be $18.57
|3SCOM Rate:||13TOD Rate:|
|Facility Charge =||$13.50||Facility Charge =||$19.00|
|First 400 kWh's .14092 x 400 =||$56.37||On-Peak .23995 x 400 =||$95.98|
|Over 400 kWh's .10552 x 1600 =||$168.83||Off-Peak .06572 x 1600 =||$105.15|
|Total: (Excl tax & EAC) =||$238.70||Total: (Excl tax & EAC) =||$220.13|
