Defeat The Peak
What Is A Peak?Energy prices for the year are set based on how much energy we use on the hottest days. If we use less energy on those high-demand days, costs go down.
What's This Event?We’re letting people know when the peak is going to happen, asking you to conserve energy on that day.*
Local Charities Win When We Defeat The Peak
We're listening to you. We designed the Defeat the Peak pilot with you, our customers, in mind. During our past survey, you told us that as an incentive for participation, you wanted to have BED donate a portion of the savings to local charities, and we couldn’t agree more.
When we save energy, we save money for all customers and can use a portion of the savings to make a donation to a deserving local charity. It is our way of saying thank you to our customers and our community for pitching in to Defeat The Peak.
* Donations are given when our customers reach our BED-selected savings target. The ISO-New England peak isn't announced until after the summer is over, and is usually announced in the fall.
