Shhh...don’t wake the sleeping peaker plant!
Did you know 15% of our air pollution from electricity comes from 1% of the time? That’s because the most polluting power plants “peaker plants” only get used in times of peak demand. So if we conserve during those times, it could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the need for expensive peaker plants that we pay for.
But how do you know when it’s time to conserve? It’s easy - join our statewide OhmConnect team and you’ll get a text! You can even connect your smart thermostat so it conserves automatically! If you use less than your typical amount for that day/time, it sends a donation to Mothers Out Front, which helps us expand to more communities!
