Critical Peak Pricing

Save by reducing consumption during higher priced CPP periods.

If your business meets the qualification requirements and can then reduce its electricity use when notified during peak periods, you could save up to 5% of your annual Xcel Energy electric bill.

How it Works

During periods of peak energy demand, such as hot summer days, our system may require more power than is typically available. Customers who participate in the Critical Peak Pricing program agree to reduce their electricity use during these periods – with 24 hours advanced notice. The more load you agree to control, the more you’ll save on your bill.


Please contact your Xcel Energy Account Manager or a Business Solutions Center representative to learn more.

Energy Saving Tip

Turn off your lights when you leave the room—even if you'll only be gone for a moment. Contemporary light bulbs require very little energy to turn "on."

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Install carbon monoxide detectors and annually hire a qualified contractor to inspect your home for proper ventilation.
