• Test Period Called for Energy Wise Rewards Customers

    May 27, 2014

    MAYS LANDING, N.J. — For customers participating in Atlantic City Electric’s voluntary Energy Wise Rewards program, a test conservation period will be called Wednesday, May 28, from  9 to 10 a.m. in order to test the equipment prior to the peak summer season.

    For those participating customers, Atlantic City Electric will cycle the participants’ air conditioner compressors off for short intervals during this time frame. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, however, most customers will not notice a temperature change in their home. It may take up to a half-hour after the test event ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations.

    Energy Wise Rewards is a voluntary program that offers customers a choice of a programmable thermostat or an outdoor switch, which the utility installs at no charge to the customer. During summer periods of peak electric demand, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage by cycling central air conditioner compressors off for short periods of time during periods of peak electricity use. Customers will receive bill reductions in return for allowing Atlantic City Electric to cycle their air conditioners a few days each year.

    Customers can learn more about Energy Wise Rewards by calling 1-866-355-4229 or visiting www.atlanticcityelectric.com/rewards.
