Each month, there is one hour when the most electric demand is requested from Platte River Power Authority, Fort Collins Utilities' wholesale electric supplier. This is known as the peak hour. Coincident peak is the facility's electric demand, or rate of energy use, during the peak hour.
For customers with rate codes in the E300 or E400 series, coincident peak charges typically account for 23% of their electric bill—yet are based on only 12 hours per year (the peak hour of each month).
When It Occurs
The peak hour typically occurs on weekdays during the afternoon or evening, depending on the season of the year.
