PeakSmart events

What is a PeakSmart event?

PeakSmart air-conditioning helps reduce peak demand by dropping your air-conditioner into a lower performance mode when the network is under stress. We call this a PeakSmart event.

You can buy a new PeakSmart air-conditioner or, in some cases, you may be able to add a signal receiver to your existing air-conditioning.

The signal receiver on your air-conditioner will get a 'message' from the network, telling it there is pressure on the network. When this occurs, your air-conditioner will operate similarly to the economy setting.

Queensland's electricity network is robust, so PeakSmart events may only occur on a few occasions per year. The technology is designed to be 'set and forget' so you won't have to do anything or notice a difference to your comfort.
