CP&L Offers New Business Rate Deal
Some commercial and industrial
businesses served by Carolina
Power & Light Co. can now benefit
from a program similar to one
offered to CP&L's residential
customers which allows them to
compare time-of-use rates with
their standard rates.
The program is available to
1,000 of CP&L's commercial and
industrial customers throughout
the company's service area. To
qualify, a customer must have
established an electric demand
between 5 and 999 kilowatts during
at least 3 of the past 12 months.
Once qualified a special time-of
use meter will be installed which
will allow customers to compare the
two rates to determine if they have
a good poteriAftffflr SavhigS'on'the
Under time-of-use rates, elec
tricity costs less during off-peak
hours and more during peak hours.
The special rate offers customers
with the majority of their electricity
usage off-peak or the potential to
shift the majority of their usage to
off-peak periods the opportunity to
save on their electricity bills. It also
encourages conservation at times
when demand for electricity is high,
which will help keep energy costs
down in the long run. according to
