Do You Know When To Reduce Your Energy Use?
Despite the relatively mild temperatures this summer and early fall, we have recently experienced hotter-than-normal days which can lead to higher bills and calls for energy conservation.
What do Event Days mean for your business?
Event days are called when demand for energy spikes across the state.
On Event Days, if your business is on the Time-of-Use pricing plan, you can save if you have the flexibility to shift your energy use to before 2 pm or after 6 pm.
If a Reduce Your Use or Critical Peak Pricing event day is called, your energy costs can increase up to 400% between the hours of 2 pm – 6 pm.
Shifting or reducing your energy use to after 6 pm or before 2 pm can help you maximize your energy savings during an Event Day.
