Understanding Peak Power


Peak power occurs when the highest level of electricity is consumed in our region within a specific timeframe. There are seasonal peaks, daily peaks and even hourly consumption peaks.

Peak electricity is more expensive, affecting power supply and infrastructure costs and, ultimately, customer bills. Supplying power during peak times also increases greenhouse gas emissions contributing to climate change.

Managing peak electricity demand is a critical component of achieving climate recovery goals and keeping energy affordable for all customers.
