SmartHours Price Plan

Make the Switch to SmartHours

Take control of your summer electricity bills! Last summer, over 99% of all residential SmartHours customers saved money on their energy bills, with an average savings of $150. Some even saved $100 per month for a total savings around $400 for the entire summer. You could, too.

From June 1 through September 30, thousands of OG&E customers participate in the SmartHours Price Plan. This risk-free plan offers electricity at almost half price for 19 hours of the day, plus weekends and holidays. All that’s asked is that you shift a little of your usage out of the peak hours from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays. At the end of your first year on the program, OG&E promises to credit your account the full difference if you pay more for electricity used than you would have on your previous rate.

How SmartHours Works

It costs more to generate and use electricity during peak periods of high customer demand. Other factors, like weather conditions and the time of year, can also drive prices higher. SmartHours, sometimes known as Variable Peak Pricing (VPP), allows you to save when costs are lower, or off peak.

During the summer, peak hours are 2 to 7 p.m. weekdays, and prices during those hours vary based on demand. Each day, you’ll receive advance notice of the next day’s peak price so you can manage your energy use. You can also visit the SmartHours Price Signal page for rates. On occasion, a critical event could be called during high demand. While these are rare, they can occur any day of the week, at any time of the year and last up to 8 hours. Critical event notices are sent at least 2 hours ahead.
