​Five Ways to Save on Peak Savings Days

On Peak Savings Days, the less energy you use the more money you could save on your electric bill. These tips will help you chill while saving money and energy:

  • 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
  • Turn off lights and electronics, if you're not using them
  • Close the shades, or blinds, to help keep your house cool

What are Peak Savings Days?

Peak Savings Days are a few days each summer when demand for energy is highest, and they typically occur for a few hours between noon and 8:00 p.m. You can earn bill credits by using less energy during those peak hours. Find out more here.
