Peak Demand Management


Lower your capacity charges
with CPower’s Peak Demand Management system

Every month your business is charged a fee—called a capacity charge or peak charge—based on how much electricity you consumed during the period when electricity demand was at its highest.

Right now, capacity charges in New England are on the rise due to the closure of older power plants and other infrastructure complaints.

If you can curtail your energy consumption during periods of peak system load, you will lower your capacity value (cap tag) which in turn will potentially reduce your power costs.

CPower’s Peak Demand Management service can help you make this happen.

  • Predicts the key hours based on grid-wide electric demands, weather data, historical grid information, and other variables.
