Did you know the cost of electricity goes up during periods of peak demand?
Normally, electricity costs only pennies per kilowatt-hour. But during peak load times, it costs as high as a dollar per kilowatt-hour!
To save money and energy during “peak alert” times, Washington Electric’s wholesale electricity supplier can shut off power to the water heaters and air conditioners of co-op members who have enrolled in the program, called “load management.” The appliances are turned off during the times when electricity use is peaking. In the end, everyone saves by conserving electricity when demands are highest, which reduces costs over the long term.
