Working Together, We Can All Save

During the summer, it’s normal to see higher levels of energy consumption across the cooperative. The kids are home for summer vacation, more of us are using our air conditioning and ceiling fans are usually on full blast.

As we mentioned, being mindful of peak times can go a long way in helping us all save money, but that’s just the beginning. Joining our energy-saving programs can make it easier to avoid excess energy use during peak periods, so you can see more of an impact on your bill.

Time-of-Day Rates

With our time-of-day rate, you’ll pay a lower rate for the energy you use during off-peak hours. So, when you implement the tips listed on the previous page, you’ll help reduce our peak demand and pay lower energy costs in the process.

Smart Thermostat Savings Program

When you allow Piedmont Electric to adjust the temperature on your Nest thermostat through your in-home Wi-Fi on very hot summer weekdays, you’ll save on energy costs and receive a bill credit from June through September. These adjustments are often made during peak times for maximum savings.

Electric Vehicle Rate

If you have an electric vehicle, you can save by charging your vehicle overnight with our electric vehicle time-of-day rate. This rate is similar to our time-of-day rate but has a super off-peak time from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night when electricity use is even cheaper!

To sign up or learn more about all of these programs and how they can help you avoid energy use during peak times, visit or call one of our helpful member service representatives at 800.222.3107.
