=>  PEAK PARTNERS PROGRAM 2016

A Program That Allows You to Help Control Power Cost

The City of Concord Electric Department needs your help in controlling wholesale power costs. In our budget, wholesale purchase power cost is the largest expense and it dominates three quarters of the budget. The largest portion of the cost is determined on a peak day that occurs on a hot summer afternoon. With our customers’ help, we will be able to reduce demand for electricity during the summer when a large portion of our wholesale power cost is determined. This will benefit Concord with lower wholesale power cost. The “Concord Peak Partners” program will allow us to let our Partners know when power costs are going to be high so they can take action. The “Concord Peak Partners” program will ask our customers to adjust thermostats, turn off lights, delay the use of major appliances or equipment, and conserve electricity in any other way that you can on hot summer weekdays between 1 PM and 6 PM. This is a voluntary program for our customers. By participating, you will be partnering with us to help control rising wholesale purchase power cost that has to be passed on to you. How do you participate in the “Concord Peak Partners” program? When the City’s Electric Department staff thinks a peak situation is going to occur, an email or text message will be sent to those customers who volunteer to participate.

Please contact the City of Concord's Electric Systems Department for additional information.
