What is Shred the Peak?

Did you know that approximately 25% of your electric bill is determined by the level of energy consumed during one hour of the year? That one hour, referred to as peak demand, typically occurs on a hot weekday afternoon between June and August. This hour represents the highest point of electricity consumption for the Northeast Massachusetts Region, and is a key factor in RMLD’s future power supply costs. Reducing the amount of energy consumed during the peak demand hour will result in significant future cost savings for you, the customer. Help us Shred the Peak and keep your electric bill low!
