Turn Down the Watts

April 11, 2017

Customers who have previously participated in ComEd’s Peak Time Savings program are familiar with the money-saving benefits they receive from participating. Since launching in the summer of 2015, Peak Time Savings delivered participants more than $1.2 million in total bill credits.

To jump on the money-saving bandwagon, customers should enroll in this summer’s program by May 27. The program runs from June to August.

By enrolling in ComEd’s Peak Time Savings program, customers can earn a $1 bill credit for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity when they voluntarily reduce their energy use during high usage times – what ComEd calls “Peak Time Savings Hours.” There is no cost to enroll and no penalty to a customer who enrolls and does not participate.

Signing up for the Peak Time Savings program was a no-brainer for Mark Felix who participated in the program in 2016.

In addition to participating in the program, Mark took his quest for energy efficiency a bit further by installing LED lightbulbs and a wireless thermostat, which allows him to control the temperature in his home remotely.

“ComEd notified me of my Peak Time Savings through text message updates,” Mark says. He was able to save money during the day by turning down his thermostat remotely.

Customers with smart meters are eligible to participate in the Peak Time Savings program, which runs throughout the summer.

To date, ComEd has installed more than 3 million smart meters in homes and businesses. ComEd plans to complete the installation of 4 million smart meters throughout its service territory by the end of 2018. Smart meters are part ComEd’s smart grid investment program that has helped produce record power reliability and customer satisfaction results.
