Shave the Peak

Shave the Peak empowers residential energy consumers to reduce energy demand on the most important days of the year. On peak days—usually the hottest or coldest days of the year—electricity demand soars, and the high electric demand is met by the most expensive, dirty fuels. With Shave the Peak, you can receive text alerts on peak days so you know to use less energy.
