Electricity Savings

July 22nd, 2013 at 04:56 pm

My local electric provider is having 2 energy saving programs. Of course, I signed up for both.

One, we are enrolled in Peak savings days. When there is one, they notify you the day before. You can get $1.25 off every kilowatt hour you reduce your energy use below your base line during this period (usually 4 hours).

Two, you can have a programmable thermostat installed and during these days (usually weekday, mid-day) and they will cycle down your air conditioner (I chose 50%). There was a $40 credit for installing it AND its programmable via phone & computer, which I find to be a HUGE perk!

    What a neat program to be offered, and I like the fact that you can control it by phone, so you can more effectively monitor the temps for when you are not home. Curious to hear about the results!
