This is a time-of-use plan. Electricity used overnight is free. However, the energy charge during the daytime is very high compared to other plans. For this plan to be a good deal for you, you would have to use a large portion of you power after 8:00 at night. The electricity rates advertised by Green Mountain assume you use 42% of your power overnight.
