GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - When the temperature goes up in summer so does the demand for electricity. The Peak Energy Savings Credit lets you earn a credit off your bill when you reduce your electricity use on specially designated Peak Savings Days.
Here's what you need to do:
1. NO ENROLLMENT NECESSARY. When a Peak Savings Day is announced you'll automatically receive a phone call giving you the hours for reducing your energy use. You can also choose to be notified by email or text.
2. TAKE ACTION. Reduce your energy use below your baseline during the specific hours of the Peak Savings Day to earn a credit off your bill.
3. VIEW YOUR CREDIT. You'll see your credit on your next bill or online through My Account at delmarva.com/myaccount.
Peak Savings Days take place between June and September, typically occur between noon and 8:00 p.m., and usually last a few hours. During these periods, you will receive a credit of $1.25 off your bill for every kilowatt hour (kWh) you reduce your energy below your baseline. The more energy you save below your baseline, the larger your credit will be.
Saving energy on Peak Savings Days can be as simple as turning off lights, waiting to run your clothes dryer until later or setting the temperature on your thermostat a few degrees higher. You can also save energy on Peak Savings Days by signing up for our Energy Wise Rewards program. You do not need to enroll to participate in the Peak Energy Savings Credit, and you can customize your notification settings to receive updates on when Peak Savings Days will occur by visiting My Account.
