Peak Energy Savings Credit

Saving is Easy this Summer

What are Peak Savings Days?

Peak Savings Days are a few days each summer when demand for energy is highest, typically occurring for a few hours between noon and 8:00 p.m. You can earn bill credits by using less energy during those peak hours. Learn more on Peak Energy Savings Credit.

We'll notify you the night before a Peak Savings Day by phone with specific hours to save energy. You can also choose to be notified by email, text, or an alternative phone number. To set your preferences, log into My Account or call 1-855-730-PEAK (7325).

Following a Peak Savings Day, you can view your credit online. Your credit will also appear on your next bill. Receive a notification that tells you how much you saved and how your savings compare to others by visiting, signing in to My Account and going to the My Alerts and Notifications page.

Five Ways to Save

During the summer months, the less energy you use means the more money you could save on your electric bill. These tips and tricks will help you save energy and money: 

  • Reduce your A/C use, even just a few degrees makes a difference
  • Fire up the outdoor grill, instead of cooking inside
  • Save high energy chores, like laundry and dishes, for later in the day
  • Unplug appliances and electronics, if you're not using them
  • Close the shades, or blinds, to help keep your house cool​
