Peak Alerts

You can help keep power costs low.

A Peak Alert is a warning that a new all-time-high demand for electricity could be set by Ohio’s electric cooperatives, which results in increased transmission costs. Usually this tends to occur on extremely cold days.

You can help avoid a new peak by turning down your heat a few degrees, turning off unnecessary lights, delaying use of large appliances and avoiding use of any other nonessential items. By helping in these ways, you’ll help your cooperative—and yourself—save money in preventing higher charges. For ways to help, visit

You can help by being part of our Radio Control Switch program for both water heaters and air conditioning units. Ask us for details about the monthly credits available for either or both of these programs. We also offer load management programs for businesses with large power usages.
