Peak Time Payback
Peak Time Payback (PTP) is a program that rewards members for reducing electricity usage during Peak Time Payback Events, which are blocks of time (typically two to three hours) when we forecast the need for electricity will be higher than usual. During these times of high demand, our costs for power are much higher than at other times during the month. We calculate your average baseline usage before the event and compare it to what you actually use during the event. If you reduce usage, Holy Cross Energy saves money and shares that savings with you!
The program is voluntary and open to residential and commercial members. There’s no cost or risk to participate in the program, just an opportunity to get a bill credit for using less electricity during PTP Events. There is no penalty for not reducing during events.
