Planning for Peak Time Events

Run your home on good energy! Understand and control how much energy your home uses.

Ready, Set, Save

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 stop and how you can reduce your energy use with simple changes.

Each event is an opportunity to earn $1 for every kilowatt hour (kWh) you reduce below your energy use "baseline" during the Peak Time Event. Your baseline is calculated from your average use over the past 10 days (excluding weekends, holidays and past Peak Time Event days) for the same hours of the day as the Peak Time Event.
