Sign up by June 30 for a chance to win a $500 gift card
Whether or not you are signed up to Beat The Peak, you’re a winner because you’re a member of Little River Electric Cooperative.
But the nearly 65,000 that have already signed up have multiple chances to win monetary prizes.
Little River Electric Cooperative members who are participating in the Peak Alert program on June 30 will be eligible to win a $500 Visa gift card in a statewide prize drawing. In addition, one Little River member will win a $100 gift card from a local prize drawing. If you are already signed up, it is not necessary to register again to be eligible for the prizes.
By participating in the Peak Alert program to Beat The Peak, electric cooperative members across South Carolina receive phone, email, or text notifications that remind them to reduce their electricity consumption during peak use periods. Those members receive an alert that shows the projected time of a system-wide energy peak, typically occurring in the late afternoon of high-temperature days. By voluntarily delaying the use of large appliances, adjusting their thermostat or just turning off some lights during that peak time, they help to lower wholesale power costs.
That’s a win for everyone that the co-op serves.
Little River Electric Cooperative members who are not signed up to Beat The Peak can easily sign up online. Just put in your name, select Little River Electric Cooperative from the drop-down menu and insert the contact information where you want to receive peak alerts—phone call, e-mail, and/or text message.
