What are Peak Days?
Peak Days helps everyone conserve energy.
A Peak Day Alert is an urgent call to Glendale residents via phone or e-mail to immediately conserve electricity and to shift demand to off-peak hours (after 9 p.m.). The Peak Day Alert program is an educational and emergency alert program that informs customers about how and when to conserve electricity.
Participation leads to high levels of conservation during heat waves which helps customers save energy and money and take the strain off of the electric grid. This program is a voluntary residential program.
What do I do when a Peak Day Alert is called?
At home or at work you can:
- Postpone using major appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines until after 9:00 p.m.
- Turn off all unnecessary lights, computers, digital clocks, phone chargers and appliances.
- Adjust your air conditioning thermostat to 78 degrees or higher. Use a fan if possible.
Glendale Water & Power issues the Peak Day Alerts and provides you with easy ways to reduce use during peak hours. Check out more energy saving tips.
When are Peak Days Alerts issued?
Ideally, a Peak Day Alert is issued a day in advance of when conservation is needed so that there is time to adjust electricity usage ahead of time such as turning thermostat off before leaving the house.
