For Immediate Release
MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Atlantic City
Electric customers will have an opportunity to save money by conserving energy
on Friday, Sept. 25.
For customers participating in Atlantic
City Electric's Energy Wise Rewards program, a Peak Savings Day will be called
on Sept. 25 from 2 to 3 p.m. This means that Atlantic City Electric will cycle
participants' air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during
these hours. Because the air conditioner fans will continue to run, most
customers will not notice a temperature change in their home, and those who do
should experience only a 1- to 3-degree change. It may take up to a half-hour
after the event ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations.
Energy Wise Rewards is a voluntary
program that offers customers a choice of a web-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. In addition to
receiving a free programmable thermostat or switch, customers will receive a
one-time bill reduction of $50 when Atlantic City Electric installs the EWR
device in their home.
Atlantic City Electric asks all
customers to conserve electricity. Customers can take simple conservation
