How does it work?

Your demand tags, known as PLC and NSPL, are determined by your local utility based on your organization’s average demand during the grid’s highest demand hours. You can reduce your costs for the next planning year by reducing your usage during these key hours.

AEP Energy makes it easy for you to reduce your usage during these hours with our PeakAdvisory Service. Our energy experts will forecast, predict and notify you when a peak-setting hour is approaching so that your organization will have the opportunity to activate its load reduction strategies. AEP Energy’s notifications are sent a day before the event and the day of an event to give you plenty of time to plan your energy management.
