Why do electricity costs fluctuate so much?

It all comes down to supply and demand. The cost of electricity is higher when the demand is high and people are using a lot of electricity – typically in the morning and around dinnertime. In the evenings, on weekends and on holidays the demand for power goes down and so does the cost for electricity. With Right Time Pricing, the City of Wadsworth puts information, technology and control in your hands to take advantage of the lower rates that are available during off-peak hours.
