a question regarding time of the day pricing

This question is to check the availability of data on time of the day pricing for PGE or any utility customers. This would be helpful to better schedule the energy usage in day-to-day life. Please let us know if you have this data available by any chance. Again, thanks for the consistent support!

A sample note on time of the day pricing is given here: http://www.ctenergyinfo.com/dpuc_time_of_day_rates.htm

    Mithun,
    I'm not aware of an authoritative source for the availability of TOU pricing across all utilities. NREL's utility rate database at http://en.openei.org/wiki/Gateway:Utilities is one option, but the accuracy and currency of that data varies by utility. Genability was also mentioned as a source for utility tariffs, but I'm not sure if they include information on TOU pricing availability.

    For PG&E in particular, the E6 TOU rate is available to all customers that have smart meters installed, and PG&E is encouraging residential customers to opt in to the summer Smartrate pricing plan, a limited TOU plan based around demand shifting on a few days in the summer. More information about that plan is here: http://www.pge.com/myhome/saveenergymoney/energysavingprograms/smartrate/.
