Having a successful Peak Time Rebates summer is easy! It’s all about shifting your energy use away from those times when energy is in high demand.
Once you’re enrolled, we’ll contact you by text or email with upcoming Peak Time Event notifications. The day before and the day of a Peak Time Event, you'll get a notification about when it will start and end and how you can reduce your energy use with simple changes.
Plus, for being enrolled in Peak Time Rebates this summer, you'll have a chance to win one of 10 $25 gift cards to a local business. And at the end of summer, if you earn a rebate, you'll have a chance to win one of five $200 gift cards. (Learn more about the summer sweepstakes.)
During the summer season, we plan to call events between 4 and 8 p.m. Each event usually lasts two to five hours. When you join Peak Time Rebates you’re always notified by email and/or text before each event.
Regardless of how much you save, when everyone works together to shift their energy consumption, it helps use more sustainable energy resources, lowering costs and continuing to provide you with reliable energy. Your participation is completely voluntary and there’s no cost to be a part of Peak Time Rebates.
These are ways to reduce your energy use during Peak Time Events and live an energy-efficient lifestyle.
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.
During Peak Time Events, your health and safety should always come first. On extremely hot 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.
