For Immediate Release
MAYS LANDING, N.J. (October 19, 2016) - A conservation period will be called from 1 to 2 p.m. Thursday, October 20, for Atlantic City Electric customers participating in Energy Wise Rewards.
For participating customers, Atlantic City Electric will cycle off and on 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 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 and on for short periods of time during periods of peak electricity use. Customers will receive a one-time bill reduction of $50 when Atlantic City Electric installs the EWR device in their home.
Customers can learn more about Energy Wise Rewards by calling 1-866-355-4229 or visiting www.atlanticcityelectric.com/rewards.
