Peak Savings Program factsheet

Our Peak Savings Program compensates participants for their ability to reduce their electric consumption when demands on our system are high, like on hot summer days.
How does the program work?
  • Customers (Peak Savings Partners) reduce their demand during called events between April 1 and September 30.
  • Events start between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Events will last no longer than four hours.
  • Peak Savings Partners receive notice between 8 and 24 hours before an event is initiated.
  • No more than 10 events may be called annually, excluding a single test event.
  • Peak Savings Partners earn incentives when they participate.
What are the benefits?
  • Free facility walk through to identify demand- saving opportunities.
  • Free online electric energy-monitoring dashboard. Ability to download daily, monthly and annual use.
  • Yearly capacity incentives of $1.50/kW committed electric demand reduction per month.
  • Yearly performance incentives of $6.75/average monthly kW reduction achieved. 
How do I know if I’m eligible to participate?
