Scioto Energy offers Critical Peak Management Services

PLC Management

Just five hours during the summer set your capacity and transmission costs for the entire next year. Your consumption during these five hours is called your Peak Load Contribution (PLC) and can drive as much as 30% of your total electric costs. With capacity and transmission costs climbing, managing your consumption during these hours is your key to reducing these costs.

Scioto Energy will send a forecast signal 24-48 hours in advance of a projected peak. You can then evaluate whether or not to reduce your consumption during these hours. If it is feasible to respond then your costs will be significantly reduced for the next delivery year. Curtailment is completely voluntary with no penalties for not responding. Reduction of energy use will lower your PLC which will in turn lower your energy costs.
