Managing your electricity use
You can save on your summer SMUD bill by reducing your electricity use between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Consider doing household chores like laundry or running your dishwasher before noon or after midnight on weekdays to take advantage of the lowest summer off-peak rates. You’ll save even more and beat the hottest hours of the day. Or schedule chores for any time on weekends and holidays when all hours are at the lowest off-peak price.
