How do I participate in a Peak Event?

Participating is voluntary and simple - you simply need to reduce your energy usage when a Peak Event is called on a summer day. If you reduce your usage, you are helping help offset the demand for electricity during periods of peak usage.

To determine your participation in reducing your energy usage during a "Peak Event," Direct Energy will evaluate the usage you generated on the day of the event and compare it to your historical usage at your service address. If we determine that you did reduce your usage by the required threshold on the day of the event, you will be given a 10 percent discount on a future bill.
