On October 17, 2008, UI filed a Variable Peak Pricing (VPP) Rider with the Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) in Docket No. 05-06-04RE04.
Effective July 1, 2009, this rider became available to customers taking generation service from UI through Last Resort Service. All customers became eligible for the VPP Rider on January 1, 2012. Under this rider, customers receiving service on a time-of-use rate will have the opportunity to purchase generation service from UI that is priced on a daily basis, with different prices for the on-peak period and off-peak period. You must have the appropriate metering to choose this rider, so a new meter may need to be installed. If non-standard metering is required, the Customer shall be responsible for the incremental costs of such metering.
