Discount LED Bulbs
You can really change the world, one light bulb at a time. Switching to LED bulbs saves you energy and money, all while helping the environment. LEDs last up to 25,000 hours or 22.5 years. That's 25 times longer than an incandescent bulb while using 84% LESS energy to produce the same amount of light output or lumens.

An Energy Audit is a process where the energy efficiency of your home is measured and evaluated by an energy auditor.

Time of Use Rate
Orange County REMC Time-Of-Use (TOU) rate provides members an opportunity to save money by shifting their electric usage to off-peak hours, either by making lifestyle changes or through the use of technology like timers, programmable thermostats, etc.
Instead of a single flat rate for energy use, time-of-use rates are higher when electric demand is higher. This means when you use energy is just as important as how much you use. "On-Peak" time is 7-11 a.m. and 4-9 p.m., Monday through Friday. Energy used at this time costs 16.7¢ per KWH. Members who use energy at all other times will only be charged 6.9¢ per KWH. (See illustration below.)
