Switch to our SmartHours® program, shift your energy usage outside of peak hours (Monday-Friday, 2-7 pm) from June 1st to September 30th and save by cutting costs for the other 19 hours of the day. Take back control of your energy expenses: switch, shift, save - and then reinvest.

It’s as Easy as Switch, Shift and Save

Switch

Switching to SmartHours® is the first step toward big and smart savings for your business, school, church or municipality. Sign up  here or by contacting our team and you’ll be putting yourself back in control of your energy costs, giving you the power to save and take those savings to  your bottom line or reinvest into your business. It takes just three easy clicks to save big.

 

Shift

With SmartHours®, you have control over your energy usage and bill. By shifting your use of electricity weekdays between 2 to 7 pm from June 1st to September 30th, to non-peak hours  you’ll pay roughly half price for electricity the other 19 hours, as well as on weekends and holidays. That means small changes could provide you with big and smart savings. Small changes like:

Charging your company’s equipment or stocking refrigerators during off-peak hours.

  • Turning off your school’s lights or computers when not in use.
  • Turning on your building’s fans before touching the thermostat.
  • Pre-cooling your business before 2 p.m. and turning up the thermostat a bit after 2 p.m.

To help ensure you are in control of your energy costs, SmartHours® customers can check our always up-to-date SmartHours pricing signal online or opt in to receive day-ahead price notifications daily via your choice of email, phone or text through myOGEalerts. In the event of high-energy demand caused by a critical event, we’ll send you critical event notices at least two hours ahead, so you can prepare and stay in control, allowing you to cut costs.
