Tips for Shifting Peak Usage

Shifting your energy usage from peak hours to off peak hours is easier than you might think. Here are some of the most effective changes you can make to benefit from Off Peak Advantage:

  • Adjust your thermostat to reduce heating and cooling during peak hours or when you are not home.
  • Operate large appliances such as washing machines, clothes dryers, and dishwashers during off-peak hours.
  • Install timers on electric water heaters so they operate mainly during off-peak hours.
  • If you have an electric vehicle, charge it during off-peak hours.
  • Set timers on pool and spa pumps to run during off-peak hours.
  • Turn off all non-essential lights during on-peak hours.
  • Enjoy electricity-consuming hobbies during the off-peak hours.
