Off-Peak

Off-Peak

Want to save money on your heating bills? Consider our residential off-peak programs. In exchange for a reduced electric rate, you allow CCEC to remotely shut off certain electric loads within your home during times of peak energy demand.

Our most popular program is dual heat. With dual heat, you have electric heat and/or a heat pump running most of the time. When market electricity prices are high, an off-peak device in your home automatically switches you from your electric source to a backup source such as natural gas, propane or fuel oil.
