Beat the Peak Program
Beat the Peak is a voluntary program of Southeastern Indiana REMC designed to encourage members to reduce their energy usage during peak demand periods. You will not see a credit on your bill for conserving energy nor will you be charged more for power if you do not conserve. This is a voluntary program, which benefits all Co-op members.
Currently, 66% of the REMCs operating cost is for the wholesale power we purchase from Hoosier Energy. If we all work together to help reduce the demand during peak times, we can reduce the REMC's power costs. Because Southeastern Indiana REMC is a not-for-profit utility, those savings are passed on to you in the form of affordable rates.
Peak demand periods occur when the demand for electricity is the highest - weekdays June-August, 5-8 p.m. and December-February, 7-10 a.m. and 6-9 p.m. During these peak periods, the co-op is charged a higher cost from our power supplier, Hoosier Energy. If we can all work together to reduce the demand, we can reduce the REMC's power costs and minimize increases you may receive on your bill.
