UPDATED: DEC & Choptank have Issued a Beat the Peak Alert for Tuesday


The Delaware Electric Cooperative has issued Beat the Peak Alert for this afternoon from 4 to 6pm. The Beat the Peak Alert from Choptank Electric Cooperative is from 3 to 6pm.

Beat the Peak provides Co-op members with the power to keep their electric rates affordable. The program is simple. During times when the cost to purchase and produce power for members is high, we issue Beat the Peak alerts. During these alert periods, we ask members to conserve energy. 

You can help by turning your thermostat up 3 degrees and delaying usage of unnecessary lights and appliances (like the washer & dryer, dishwasher, stove and hot water heater). Use your outdoor grill or microwave to cook food.
