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

 

On Friday, August 3, 2018, WGL Energy Services, Inc. (WGL Energy) issued an important notice to customers recommending they reduce electricity usage during the afternoon hours between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday, August 6. This is the eighth advisory issued by WGL Energy this summer, and is 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

 Monday, August 6, 2018 - From 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

 

Monday, August 6 – High temperatures could impact your Capacity Peak Load Contribution (PLC) and future electricity costs. There is a likelihood that an hour between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Monday, August 6, will end up as one or more of the five highest peak loads of the year.

 

About PLC

Effective 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 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday, August 6. 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). 

If you have any questions, please contact your sales representative. 

These conditions change periodically and we will send updates as information becomes available.
