ComEd will credit your energy bill when you reduce your energy usage below what you have typically used during recent hot summer days 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 expects to announce Peak Time Savings Hours on two to four days during the summer season, but five or more events are possible. Announcements always occur the morning of the event, day-ahead notifications are never possible. But remember, there’s no penalty for not participating in any particular Peak Time Savings Hours event, and you can always participate during the next one.
When you enroll, you can choose to be notified by phone call, text message or email. You must select at least one channel to remain enrolled in the program. 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 the event. PTS Hours are also announced on Facebook and Twitter, so follow ComEd in social media to ensure you never miss an opportunity to earn a bill credit!
When you participate, ComEd will credit your monthly bill for reducing your energy use during Peak Time Savings Hours. A credit will appear as actual dollars off the total amount due on your next energy bill or the following bill. There is no penalty for not participating. You just won't earn a credit on your energy bill for that day. And, you can still participate in future Peak Time Savings Hours.
The amount your energy bill will be credited will be based on how much energy usage you reduced during Peak Time Savings Hours compared to what you typically would have consumed. See the chart below for examples of the bill credit amounts you could potentially earn by participating in a Peak Time Savings Hours. Use the

Both ComEd programs offer summer bill credits and are built upon the customer’s ability to reduce energy usage when energy demand is high. Most customers earn larger bill credits on
Central AC Cycling than they would on Peak Time Savings, but these programs differ in several important ways.
Customers may not participate simultaneously in Peak Time Savings and Central AC Cycling. Additionally, customers on net metering may not participate in Peak Time Savings.
