Polk-Burnett Beat the Peak Enrollment Form

Beat the Peak is a free program offered by Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative, which alerts members when times of peak energy use are approaching. You can be notified of an alert via email, text, or automated phone call, when you need to conserve energy. We ask members to voluntarily conserve energy during times of peak energy use because that's when the cost of energy is the highest. By reducing energy use across our system during these times, we're able to keep rates stable.
