Prices change based on the day classification as well as the time of day. During the summer, the highest prices are in the middle of the day between 1 and 6PM, during the winter the highest prices are during the early morning and late at night.
Each day will be classified as a high priced day (A Day), a medium priced day (B Day) or a low priced day (C Day). Low priced (C) days will occur most frequently, at least 280 days a year. There will be no more than 30 high-priced (A) days per year
Dominion will provide notification for high priced days by 6PM the day before.
There is the possibility for “events” to occur up to 25 times per year in five-hour blocks. These critical peak events can occur on any day but will typically occur on high priced days. Dominion will provide event notifications 2 hours before. Events can occur on any day classification; typically they will occur on high priced (A) days.
The Smart Pricing Plan is a year-long plan during which customers can see price benefits over the course of an entire year.
