A large part of power supply cost is determined by energy used during peak load periods, when people are using the greatest amount of electricity. If we can reduce the demand during these peak times, we can reduce Blue Grass Energy’s power costs and minimize increases on your monthly electric bill.
Enroll in Blue Grass Energy’s voluntary Beat the Peak, and we’ll alert you by text message, e-mail or phone. Alerts will tell you when a peak period time is expected. Here’s an example: “Beat the Peak: Conserve energy tomorrow between 4-7 p.m. Raise your A/C thermostat 3 degrees.”
You have the power to plan your energy conservation measures.
- Adjust the thermostat by 3 degrees (up in the summer and down in the winter)
- Postpone hot water use
- Delay using major appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer)
- Turn off unneeded lights or appliances
Why should you enroll?
Since Blue Grass Energy is a member-owned cooperative, our goal is to provide reliable power at the lowest possible cost. Beat the Peak is designed to help take control of higher power costs through energy conservation during high demand periods. Conserving during peak periods also helps reduce the strain on the power grid. When Blue Grass Energy is successful in reducing peak demand it helps reduce our cost, which in turn helps keep your cost down.
