MAYS LANDING, N.J. — A test
conservation period will be called from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April. 23
for Atlantic City Electric’s voluntary Energy Wise Rewards program in order to
test equipment prior to the peak summer season.
For participating customers, Atlantic
City Electric will cycle the participants’ air conditioner compressors for
short intervals during this time frame. 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.
