WGL Energy Issues More Notices Regarding Peak Electricity Usage
Reduced usage during peak periods now can lower your costs next year

 

On Monday, July 9, 2018 and Friday, July 13, 2018, WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) issued important notices to commercial and government customers recommending that they reduce electricity usage during the afternoon hours between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10 and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 16. These are the sixth and seventh advisories issued by WGL Energy this summer, and are intended to alert customers of potential peak load periods.

High temperatures can impact the cost of your Capacity Peak Load Contribution (PLC). Your PLC can influence 10-30% of your electricity bill, so by lowering your PLC this summer you will be able to reduce your PLC and overall electricity costs for a full 12-month period starting next summer (June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020).

A copy of this notice is included below. If you did not receive your email copy, please contact your account manager and ask to be included in the distribution of future notices. For a summary of notices issued during 2018, please visit our website.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
 Electricity Use Reduction Recommendation

     Tuesday, July 10, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Monday, July 16, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


 

Tuesday, July 10 and Monday, July 16 – High temperatures could impact your Capacity Peak Load Contribution (PLC) and future electricity costs. There is a likelihood that an hour between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 10 and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 16, will end up as one or more of the five highest peak loads of the year.


About PLC
On June 1 of every year, each building is assigned a PLC number by its utility. This number is based on the peak usage, which is calculated using five hours from the prior year with the highest system demand, excluding holiday weekdays and weekends. (Note: The selected hours come from five different 24-hour periods.)  Peak usage generally occurs on the five hottest days of the year – and this summer's usage will affect the PLC for next summer.


Our Recommendation
We recommend that, whenever possible, you reduce your electricity usage from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 10 and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, July 16. Your PLC can influence 10-30% of your electricity bill, so by lowering your PLC this summer you will be able to reduce your PLC and overall electricity costs for a full twelve-month period starting next summer (June 1, 2019 to May 31, 2020).
