Lansing Board of Water and Light Residential Electric Customers Switch to Time of Use

Starting on November 1, all residential electric customers of Michigan public power utility Lansing Board of Water and Light will be updated to a time of use calculation to help better manage energy usage.

“The change to time of use rates will not increase an average residential customer’s electric bill,” the utility noted on its website.

The Lansing Board of Water & Light “made the informed decision to update residential electric customers to time of use, which follows industry best practice,” Amy Adamy, Public Relations & Marketing Manager at the utility, said.

“The change provides an easy way for BWL customers to take a hands-on approach to reducing energy consumption and costs during peak demand, while also having a positive impact on the environment. The decision was part of a previous strategic plan and rate strategy that was approved by BWL’s Board of Commissioners in 2022,” she said.

BWL said it will continue offering its “Off-Peak Savers Rate” to residential electric customers who want to take a more active approach and are looking for extra savings by shifting their energy usage to off-peak times.
