Shift your power usage and save
Switch to Get Shifty
With Get Shifty (Time of Use pricing) you pay a bit less for power you use at off-peak times, and a bit more for power you use at peak times. So you can save money by shifting your power use.
In some network areas Time of Use is the default pricing, in others we offer Get Shifty as an option.
