Peak Day Pricing Event Day guidelines

PG&E calls Peak Day Pricing Event Days on especially hot days when the demand for electricity can reach an extreme level.

  • No more than 15 Peak Day Pricing Event Days are called each year. Event Days may be called on weekends or holidays.
  • We can send you an alert by email, text or phone the day before an Event Day, so you can plan ahead to conserve or shift your energy use.
  • PG&E asks your help in shifting or reducing your energy use from 5-8 p.m. on Peak Day Pricing Event Days.
