Capital Electric offers optional rate programs that can be used as saving strategies. Some members naturally benefit from these rates due to their consumption patterns. Other members choose to pursue technology or adjustments to their utilization of energy to achieve savings.

  • Coincident Peak - this rate has four components with the most impactful one being focused on the half-hour peak usage period during each month. If you can avoid usage during these half-hour peaks, you can benefit from a lower monthly base and kilowatt hour rate. In many cases, we can offer peak alerts to help you avoid usages during these peak periods
  • Demand Time-of-Use - this rate is built around peak consumption windows. It measures your consumption during these peaks to determine your electricity costs. Under this program, these consumption windows are defined and can allow you to automate some or all of your electric usage around the defined peak windows to achieve the most savings.
