Cuyahoga Falls Electric Peak Shaving

This week the area power system is expected to experience higher loads. The Cuyahoga Falls Electric Department is asking customers to reduce load between the hours of 2:00PM and 6:00PM each day this week to help reduce charges on their bills.

Cuyahoga Falls Electric gets billed capacity and transmission charges based on the city’s peak usage the previous year. The peak usage amount is set by the city’s usage during the five days and hours when the transmission system was at its peak for the year. Part of the city’s power cost is rolled along to the customers.
