Variable Peak Pricing (VPP)

On July 1, 2008 a new time-of-use option, the Variable Peak Pricing Rider, became effective.

Under this rider, customers receiving service on a time-of-use rate will have the opportunity to purchase generation service from Eversource that is priced on a daily basis during peak hours and on a monthly basis during off-peak hours. You must have the appropriate metering to choose this rider, so a new meter might need to be installed. If non-standard metering is required, the Customer may be responsible for the incremental costs of such metering.
