What is peak demand?
Demand charges for business customers
Demand is the rate at which electricity is used, and is typically measured in kilowatts (kW). Peak demand is the highest rate of electricity use during a period of time. Our smart meters measure demand using 15-minute intervals with three consecutive five-minute sub-intervals. The highest 15-minute demand average recorded in each billing period is used to calculate the demand charge on your bill.
For transmission customers, demand is measured by kilovolt (kVA) over 30-minute intervals. The highest average 30-minute kVA in a billing period is used to calculate the demand charge on transmission bills.
Demand charges are not applicable to Small General Service or residential customers.
