Critical Peak events are times when we predict that power demand will be unusually high—during peak events your rate for energy will be $1.50 per kWh. A Critical Peak event will:

  • last only 4 hours
  • happen a maximum of 22 times between November 1 – March 31
  • occur on weekdays, never weekends or holidays
  • be communicated to you by email the day before, then again before it starts
  • be added to the chart below
