Off-peak

All hours of the year not identified as On-Peak or Super Off-peak From June to September, weekdays from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., and during weekends from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. For October to May, 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. The majority of the hours in a year (62%) fall in the Off-peak time period.

On-peak

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