MEC Seeking Demand Reduction Pilot Program Participants!

MEC is launching an 18-month peak demand reduction pilot program called PEAK HOUR REWARDS.  The intent is to minimize our wholesale power costs by shifting peak time electric usage (typically between 7am and 9am) to non-peak periods.  The findings of the pilot program will be used to determine if a full scale program would be viable.  Reducing our peak usage helps us all!
