PeakRewards has planned a TEST emergency cycling event.

BGE is required by PJM Interconnection, the Regional Transmission Operator for the mid-Atlantic region, to activate an annual test emergency cycling event during the summer to ensure system operations compliance. The event is planned to take place in late September. To minimize potential customer inconvenience, we anticipate the event will take place between 11 am and 3 pm.

If you are enrolled in the PeakRewards Air Conditioning Program, your air conditioner will be cycled up to your full cycling participation level (50%, 75%, or 100%) and overrides will not be permitted during the test event. 

For questions or if you require immediate assistance, please call the PeakRewards customer hotline at 1.888.309.PEAK (7325). For more information, click here.

About PeakRewards

The PeakRewards program encourages participants to use less air conditioning on “peak demand” days in exchange for credits on their BGE bill. The program helps keep down overall energy costs, reduce the need for additional power plants and ease the burden on Maryland’s electricity delivery system as our state’s population continues to grow.
