Looking for an easy way to keep costs down for yourself and all members? Blue Ridge Energy’s Beat The Peak program is for you!
Participating is simple and voluntary! Sign up to receive the alert of your choice — text, email or phone call — to let you know when a peak will occur. Then, take action to help “beat the peak” by shifting some of your electricity consumption outside of peak hours.
Peaks occur when a majority of people are using the most electricity in a short amount of time and power producers must generate enough electricity to meet that demand. In our area, this is usually between 2-7 p.m. on the hottest days of summer.
If members voluntarily reduce their electricity usage during peak demand times, it can make a big difference in controlling expensive wholesale power cost to keep rates — and bills — low. It can even help delay the need to build power plants!
