BEAT THE PEAK & PEAK TIME PERKS
Beat the Peak is a free program that notifies members via text and/or email when there are forecasts for extreme temperatures, a.k.a peak times. Peaks occur when the demand (and cost) for electricity is the highest. When you receive an alert, you'll be encouraged to adjust your thermostat and lightning and to shift the time you use large appliances in an effort to hold down the demand for power. In turn, you will help us reduce our costs by limiting how much additional energy we have to purchase during the peak!
Enrolling in our Peak Time Perks program allow us, your energy services provider, to automatically adjust your smart thermostat to balance our energy savings. At any time during this event of course, you can choose to manually change the temperature, but allowing us to turn your thermostat up or down a couple notches can help our energy grid in meaningful ways. Not to mention, participants are credited $50 on their electric bill when they sign up and an additional $20 each year after that.
