Shave the Peak

Shave the Peak empowers people to use less electricity when it matters most. Become a member of a growing community committed to reducing electricity use at home on days when skyrocketing overall demand is met by turning on power plants that use the dirtiest and most expensive fossil fuels. These are called “peak days.”


How Does Shave The Peak Work?

  1. Sign up for Shave the Peak alerts to receive notifications about peak events.
  2. We’ll let you know when a peak day is coming up and send you some suggestions for cutting down on electricity use during peak hours.
  3. Use less energy between 3-8pm on high demand days.

After signing up, you’ll be able to manage and change your alert preferences at any time.

Our collective actions advocate forward-thinking policies that can transform our electric grid.
