Shifting the balance of power—to you.

If you're a large energy user, your enterprise has the unique opportunity to take control of the total cost you pay for your power—and Direct Energy Business can help you do it.

Through Peak Load Management, your enterprise can take steps to lower what’s called your Peak Load Contribution or PLC.


How is your Peak Load Contribution calculated?

Peak load days or hours are times of maximum energy consumption on the grid. At the end of the summer, your local distribution company identifies the highest peak times, and then reviews how much power you consumed during that time. This value is called your Peak Load Contribution, or PLC.

Industry-leading Peak Load Management with PowerRadar®

The key to successful Peak Load Management is acting to cur tail energy consumption at the precise right time. That means that real-time data and up-to-the minute notifications of forecasted peak load events is critical.

That's why, in collaboration with our sister company, Centrica Business Solutions, we developed PowerRadar—our industry leading energy management platform.

Real-time data to turn insights into action

Through the PowerRadar® platform, you'll have real-time insights into your energy usage including baselines, consumption and how much energy use you are curtailing so that you can make adjustments during an event.

Real-time notifications keep you informed

When we predict there's a high probability of a peak day occurring, PowerRadar will alert you with notifications—including text, email or push notifications from the PowerRadar app.

Unrivaled peak event prediction algorithm

In order to successfully lower your PLC—and have minimum disruption to your operation—you need to know with near certainty—sometimes down to the minute or second, when a peak event will occur. Our proprietary artificial intelligence algorithm has a proven track record of delivering accurate forecasts.
