What is Peak Demand? Peak Demand indicates a day when stress on your regional electricity grid (PJM) may be at its highest.
Peak Demand days are typically during the hottest months of the year, June–September.
Your Utility monitors and records the five highest demand days each year to:
Determine their capacity purchases for the following year (ensuring enough energy can be generated to satisfy demand across the entire grid in order to avoid potential blackouts or brownouts.)
Determine your individual PLC tags (Peak Load Contribution - what you contribute to electricity demand on the grid.)
These results determine approximately 20% of your monthly electricity bill.
You can reduce PLC costs dramatically with the right strategy.
