Peak Status Descriptions
Below are the actual times that Kay Electric set their monthly peaks in year 2017. These times make sense for most of us that are busy with families and jobs. However, being cognizant of when our individual homes use “peak power” and making a conscience effort to spread our usage over a longer timeframe can save our homes energy dollars. Also, remember that each individual home uses electricity differently and can have peaks at different times. Keep in mind when Western Farmers calls a peak it will typically be for three hours from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
