Planning for Peak Time Events

Understand and control how much energy your home uses.

Ready, Set, Save 

After you’re enrolled we’ll call you or send you a text or email the day before a Peak Time Event. We will let you know when the event will start and stop. During an event you can reduce your energy use with simple changes. You can 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.
