PNM Peak Saver

Annual Incentives for Using Energy More Efficiently

The PNM Peak Saver program helps large commercial and industrial business customers save energy by reducing the electricity demand when it's at its peak. Businesses that participate in the PNM Peak Saver program receive an annual incentive based on the amount of electricity managed during their participation in the program. It is a great way to save energy which results in saving money for your business.

Program Benefits

  • It is an environmentally friendly approach that helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Reduces your business's electricity demand during peak usage days and helps you save energy and money.

Who Can Participate?

PNM large business electric customers

  • Customers on rates  4B, 5B, 11B, 15B, 30B, and 35B. Learn more about rates here.
  • Businesses with peak demand greater than 50kW on PNM rate 3B

How the Program Works

  • PNM will work with you to identify curtailable electric load and determine the appropriate strategy to meet your specific business needs.
  • We will measure and verify your facility's performance and ensure operational conditions are satisfactory during demand response events.
  • We will enroll your facility in the PNM Peak Saver program allowing our system operators to call demand response events only when needed during peak times.
  • When PNM experiences a high peak demand and anticipates the need for demand-side resources, notifications will be sent out at least 10 minutes prior to the start of a demand response event. However, in many cases, we will be able to provide information about a possible event many hours in advance. No action is required by your facility, and you always have the option to withdraw from the event if operational constraints prevent you from participating.
