Peak Energy Demand Days are a few days each summer, and sometimes during the winter, when demand for electricity is highest. Conserve energy every day, and especially on peak energy demand days. Demand is typically at its highest in the summer between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on very hot days. Peak energy demand during the winter months occurs during the morning hours on cold days, but can be throughout the day when cold weather is extreme.
During extreme weather, pay attention to messaging from Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), in the event they request reductions in electricity demand during certain hours. Download ERCOT's mobile app and follow ERCOT on Twitter @ERCOT_ISO to track electricity demand.
