For Immediate Release
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.
