Power outages values are estimated to be between 100 to 150 costly more than the value of electrical energy and; the lack of electricity for industrial, commercial and even household customers has various political, security as well as social consequences. The shortage of hydroelectric power and the financial resources to build new power plants caused the summer black-out of the year 1397. The Department of Energy's set of conditions and warnings about the likelihood of escalation in the summer of 98 have drawn serious attention to the consumption pattern correction approach to reduce peak load. Since about 40% of peak load is used for cool buildings, any modification of the cooling pattern will play a decisive role in reducing the peak load. This paper presents a personal contact cooling method (PCCM) using cool, very low cost, one-hundredths of the cost of the practical capacity of the power plant in Peak- bar, without the need for electricity and with very low water consumption. This approach is simple and can be expressed as follows. First humidifies the bricks. These produces fresh and cool air which can by touch /feel externally, be transferred to the cooling of the blood flow and cooling the body internally, and given the evolving experiences, it can provide a significant portion of the cooling need. The use of cool ceramic can reduce production capacity by 1-4 GW by maintaining thermal comfort. In the absence of electricity, this amount of reductions reduces about160 billion riyals of blackout per gigawatt. In the paper's proposed option for the release of one GW (1000 MW) of plant's operational capacity at Peak-bar, the value of the released capacity is approximately 100,000 billion rails. It is also possible to provide people with a part of the cooling power during a power outage.
