* I’ve heard about Cimarron Electric’s SmartHub. Is it easy to use?


SmartHub is Cimarron Electric’s self-service site for members, and yes, it is easy to use! It’s also an extremely helpful tool for members. Here’s how to get started:


“Beat the Peak,” is a program designed to help members become more energy aware and lower their power bills by using energy more efficiently and by reducing the energy consumed during peak periods when prices are at their highest.


There are two major factors that affect the price of electricity - the price of fuel needed to generate power, and the demand for power. The demand for electricity on our system is greatest in the hot summer months between the peak period hours of 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.


During normal load periods we pay only pen- nies per kilowatt-hour for power. However, dur- ing “Peak” demand or energy periods when the temperatures rise, we can pay up to one dollar per kilowatt-hour and in turn, we must pass these higher costs on to our members which may have an impact on rates.


The demand for electricity is greater in the hot summer months from June 20 to September 20. To meet the demand for power, we must produce the power or purchase it on the market. Conse- quently, the cost are greater during peak time when demand is high. These higher cost are reflected in the power cost adjustment applied to the monthly bill for Cimarron Electric and our members.


Four Ways To Beat The Peak


1. Turn your air conditioner thermostat up three degrees between 2:30 and 7:30 p.m.


2. Wait until after 7:30 p.m. to start the dish- washer, clothes washer or dryer.
