When extreme temperatures drive up the demand for energy across our service territory and regional grid, MidAmerican Energy will notify customers of a Peak Alert. This important notice is our request for all our customers to voluntarily conserve energy.
Peak Alerts may be issued when energy use is in high demand across MidAmerican’s service area or even across the region. This is often associated with extreme temperatures – either hot or cold. We may also issue a call to conserve energy when we are directed by our regional transmission authority to reduce the electric load.
During Peak Alerts, help us save energy and reduce demand for electricity by taking the quick actions below.
