** Gasoline estimate based on a ratio of 1 kWh = 3.4 miles, 24.7 MPG, and a cost of $2.50 per gallon.

Super Off-peak

About 33% of the hours in a year fall in the Super Off-peak time period. This period is from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. every day of the year and it has the lowest prices. It’s cheapest for Georgia Power to produce electricity during these hours so the savings are passed on to you.


The majority of the hours in a year (62%) fall in the Off-peak time period. From June to September, this period is from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. during weekdays, and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. during weekends. For all other months, this period is from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Prices during this period are higher than the Super Off-peak time period, but much lower than the On-peak time period.


Although the On-peak period has the highest prices, only about 5% of the hours during a year fall in this period. This period includes hours from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., June to September, and represents the time when it’s most expensive for Georgia Power to produce electricity.
