For Immediate Release
D.C. - Pepco customers will have an opportunity to save money by conserving
energy on Friday, Sept. 25, a Peak Savings Day.
For Pepco Maryland customers, the
Maryland Public Service Commission has approved the Peak Energy Savings Credit
program. It rewards Pepco Maryland customers by offering bill credits when
Maryland customers reduce energy use at home during Peak Savings Days. Tomorrow's
Peak Savings Day conservation period will be called from 2-3 p.m. Pepco
Maryland customers will automatically receive a phone call giving the hours for
reducing energy use. Customers can also choose to be notified by email or text.
Maryland customers who reduce energy use below their specified baseline during
the specific hours of the Peak Savings Day can receive a credit of $1.25 off
their bill for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of reduced usage, through the Peak
Energy Savings Credit program.
Maryland and District of Columbia customers participating in Pepco's voluntary
Energy Wise Rewards program, a conservation period will be called from 2-3 p.m.,
Friday. This means that Pepco will cycle the
participants' air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during
these hours. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, most
customers will not notice a temperature change in their home, and those who do
should experience only a 1-to 3-degree change. It may take up to a half-hour
after the event ends at 3 p.m. for air conditioners to resume normal
Peak Energy Savings Credit and Energy Wise
Rewards are voluntary programs. Customers can learn more about Peak Energy
Savings Credit by calling 1-855-730-PEAK or visit www.pepco.com/peak. To learn
