What are Peak Hours?

Generally, when we speak of "peak hours," we are referring to the times of highest electricity use over the course of the day. Electricity usage fluctuates constantly due to weather conditions, commercial and industrial business hours and residential electricity usage.

In general, Peak Events are declared when demand for electricity threatens to outpace supply, which typically can occur during hot summer days and cold winter mornings. Additionally, these days can be declared if generation facilities are closed for maintenance, transmission lines are damaged, or during periods when the price to purchase added electricity escalates.
