We had the same issue in Phoenix. We installed a load meter that would automatically cut power to "non essential" appliances when you approached a pre-programmed peak usage. We had it shut off hot water, dryer, pool pump, and a couple of other circuits that I don't recall at the moment. It paid for itself quickly. This was about 15 years ago so there may be better technology now. Your friendly electric company may even provide this service for you.
