2011 California Statewide Critical Peak Pricing Evaluation Presentation

California is the only state with default Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) rates

  • CPP is a rate in which the utility charges a higher price for consumption of electricity during peak hours on critical days in exchange for a reduction in non-peak energy charges, demand charges or both.
  • Approximately 15,000 customers have been defaulted onto CPP and about 6,000 remain on the rate. Most of them are large customers (over 200 kW of max demand).
  • All large customers defaulted onto CPP from TOU rates that already provided them an incentive to reduce or shift consumption from peak hours
