Pepco Customers Can Save Money on Friday by Saving Energy

Pepco customers can save energy and money by reducing their electric use between 1 – 5 p.m. Friday.

According to a Pepco news release, an increased demand for electricity throughout the mid-Atlantic region is anticipated for July 21st. While the region’s power supply is expected to be sufficient to meet high demand, Pepco customers are encouraged to conserve energy and save money on the Peak Savings Day.

Pepco’s Maryland customers are offered the opportunity to earn bill credits on Peak Savings Days through the Peak Energy Savings Credit Program. Customers participate simply by saving energy during the specified hours — no enrollment is needed. Customers will receive a bill credit of $1.25 for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of reduced energy use below the customer’s average energy use on a Peak Savings Day. Customers will receive a phone call indicating the hours to reduce energy use, but they can also choose to be notified by email or text. Customers can see their energy savings on their next bill, or on the next day in My Account.

For Maryland and District of Columbia customers signed up to participate in Pepco’s Energy Wise Rewards® program, Pepco will cycle their air conditioners during this period. This means Pepco will cycle the participant’s air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during this time frame. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, most customers will not notice a temperature change in their home. It may take up to a half-hour after the event ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations.

Customers can learn more about Peak Energy Savings Credit by calling 1.855.730.PEAK or visiting www.pepco.com/peak.
