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

Install ceiling fans to keep cool air circulating so you can turn down your air conditioner. Still, make sure to turn off your fan when you leave the room.


Gas Meter Safety

Keep your natural gas meter dry and clear of snow and ice at all times to avoid the potential for dangerous indoor natural gas buildup.
