How are Peak Time Rebates calculated?

Your energy use “baseline” is calculated from your average use over the past 10 days for the same hours of the day as the Peak Time Event. This excludes weekends, holidays and any other past Peak Time Event days. You can earn $1 for every kilowatt hour (kWh) you reduce below that baseline during the Peak Time Event. 

Stay safe

During Peak Time Events, your health and safety should always come first. On extremely cold winter days, please be sure to keep the temperature in your home safe by exercising discretion during Peak Time Events. Consider health impacts when reducing energy use.

There is no cost to you to enroll in Peak Time Rebates. Your electric bill will be calculated based on your energy use and may go up or down based on how much electricity you use.
