How do I participate in a Peak Event?

Participating is voluntary and simple - you simply need to reduce your energy usage between the hours of 5pm and 7pm 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. For ideas on how to save energy during a "Peak Event", you can visit the Direct Energy Blog for more information.

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% discount on a future bill.
