Minnesota Power customers in Duluth and Hermantown are receiving notices that they could apply to be part of a new program.

It's called Time-of-Day Rate Pilot.

Right now, you pay based on how much energy you use.

This new pilot program would charge you different amounts, for peak and off-peak hours.

Peak hours are from 8am-10pm. Off peak are 10pm-8am, and all day on weekends and certain holidays.

"You're choosing when you're using the energy, and could actually receive a discount on your current rate. If you using more energy during peak times, you could pay a bit more," explained Tina Koecher, manager of Customer Solutions for Minnesota Power.

For example, if you do your laundry or run your dishwasher during off-peak hours, you could end up saving money.

It's a 12-month, voluntary program, and you do need to meet certain requirements. For more info:
