What is it?

Critical Peak Pricing is a new schema for big electricity facilities to charge you more for the same energy, during the hottest summer days, or whenever consumption is at its highest

How does it work?

Critical Peak Pricing Days are called when energy demand is at its highest and can occur on any day, including holidays, in the best case with a 24-hour notification.

How does it affect me?

On a CPP Day, you'll be charged significantly higher rates than normal for the same energy use between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. and it doesn’t matter your utility facility, since all of them are applying some version of this schema.

How can I avoid it?

The good news is you have the power to opt-out, not only from this schema, but from all future Utility Companies impositions!
