Electricity Use Reduction Recommendation

Wednesday - Thursday  

September 2 - 3, 2015

3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

 

Today and tomorrow – Wednesday, September 2 and Thursday, September 3 – temperatures are expected to be in the nineties. There is a high probability that an hour between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. will end up as one of the five highest peak loads of the year. These high temperatures could impact the cost of your Capacity Peak Load Contribution (PLC).

 

About PLC

On June 1 of every year, each building is assigned a PLC number by your utility. Your PLC is based on your peak usage during the five hours of the prior year with the highest system demand. (Note: The selected hours come from five different 24-hour periods.)  Peak usage generally occurs on the five hottest days of the year – and your usage this summer will affect the PLC for next summer.

 

Electric Advisors Recommends:

We recommend that you reduce, whenever possible, your electricity usage from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today and tomorrow. Your PLC can influence 10-30% of your electricity bill, so by lowering your PLC this summer you will be able to reduce your PLC and overall electricity costs for a full twelve-month period starting next summer (June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2017).
