Peak Time Savings Hours

ComEd will credit your electric bill when you reduce your electricity use during Peak Time Savings Hours. Peak Time Savings Hours will typically occur for a few hours between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. during the summer -- when most air conditioners are on, stores are open and factories are running. ComEd will announce three to five days with Peak Time Savings Hours during the summer season.

Notification Method

When you enroll, you can choose to be notified by phone call, text message or email. You will be notified on the day Peak Time Savings Hours occur - as early as 9 a.m. or at least 30 minutes prior to the start of each Peak Time Savings Hours.

Earn a Bill Credit

When you participate, ComEd will credit your monthly bill for reducing your electricity use during Peak Time Savings Hours. A credit will appear as actual dollars off the total amount due on your next electric bill or the following bill. There is no penalty for not participating. You just won't earn a credit on your electric bill for that day. And, you can still participate in future Peak Time Savings Hours.
