• Conservation Test For Energy Wise Rewards Customers

    Sep 29, 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 from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday in order to test equipment.

    For participating customers, Atlantic City Electric will cycle the participants’ air conditioner compressors off for short intervals during this time frame. Due to minimal air conditioner use because of anticipated mild weather, customers are not expected to notice any significant change in comfort. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, 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 install the device in their home.

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