AC Load Management
As a Cooperative member, you have the power to help manage rising energy costs in your community. Making smart energy choices has never been easier! Here are 3 reasons to join our Air Conditioning Load Management Program:
1. YOU PAY NOTHING — We provide the demand response unit, and the free installation is performed by a qualified HVAC technician from our business partner, Utility Partners of America.
2. WE PAY YOU — As our way of saying thank you for joining our program, you will receive a one-time credit* of $25 on your REC electric bill!
3. IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO — We must work together to manage the rising cost of wholesale power. REC offers this program to reduce load during periods of high demand. This helps avoid having to import expensive electricity into our electrical system, reduces the strain on the system, and may even help delay the need for new power generation.
How the program works
The program allows us to send a signal to your AC unit during peak load periods that will cycle it on and off a few minutes each hour. The fan will continue to run, keeping your home comfortable. Most participants never notice a difference. Participation is easy, voluntary and 100% free!
