Peak Load

Peak load is the maximum load on an electrical power supply system. As defined by utility providers, it is the single time (usually an hour or 30 minutes) of highest demand during the day. Peak load is the opposite of base load, which is the lowest amount of energy a building needs to run.

Why it Matters

Electricity is more expensive during peak hours. You can optimize energy savings by reducing energy consumption during peak load times.
