Help RMLD ‘Shred The Peak’ To Help Keep Rates Affordable

Below is an announcement from Reading Municipal Light Department:

READING, MA — As temperatures rise in the late spring/early summer months, so does the demand for electricity.

Shred the Peak is a voluntary customer program that encourages conservation during high-demand time, or “peaks”. Peaks occur when the highest level of electricity is consumed in our region both monthly and annually. Peak electricity is expensive, affecting power supply costs and in turn, customer bills.

RMLD issues Shred the Peak alerts to notify customers when a peak is predicted and asks customers to take simple steps to conserve electricity during the predicted peak window. Conservation during predicted peaks will help control costs and keep electric rates affordable for all customers. We encourage you to do your part and sign up for our alerts.

Sign up for the alerts HERE.
