PowerPerks is a free annual program that runs from June 1 through September 30.

  • You’re joining a program exclusively for eligible AEP Energy customers with an existing Fixed All-Inclusive Price Plan.¹

    We’ll send an email notification to you when a high-demand day is anticipated by 12 p.m. EPT, a day prior to the projected event that identifies the projected peak hours. We’ll also send an email on the day of the anticipated event confirming or canceling the event by 12 p.m. EPT. In the event of an unanticipated high-demand day, we will send an email notification at least two hours prior to the event.

  • Your business has the option to participate by reducing energy consumption during the event or not, without any penalty or fees. When you choose to participate, you can earn at least $500 per megawatt-hour (MWh) of reduced consumption (Note that the actual payment rate will be specified in the “Reduction Notice” sent prior to the event). Reducing your energy is as simple as turning off artificial lighting in unused or naturally-lit spaces.

  • Payment will be made to you in the form of a check or bill credit in December following each June through September period, subject to applicable terms and conditions.¹
