Beat the Peak
Working together, you and Piedmont Electric can save on power costs. Beat the Peak is designed to reduce energy during peak demands, which helps lower energy costs.
A large part of power supply cost is determined by energy used during peak load periods when people are using the greatest amount of electricity. If we can reduce the demand during these peak times, we can reduce Piedmont Electric's power costs and save our members money!
Enroll in Piedmont Electric's voluntary Beat the Peak, and we'll alert you by text message or email. Alerts will tell you when a peak period time is expected. Here's an example:
"Beat the Peak: Conserve energy tomorrow between 1 - 6 p.m. Raise your thermostat at least 3 degrees."
You have the power to plan your energy conservation measures.
Why should you enroll?
Since Piedmont Electric is a member-owned cooperative, our goal is to provide reliable power at the lowest possible cost. Beat the Peak is designed to help take control of higher power costs through energy conservation during high demand periods. Piedmont Electric's Beat the Peak program can save our members money by reducing our peak billing load and helping to delay the need for costly generating plants!
