Conservation Period Called for Participating Atlantic City Electric Energy Wise Rewards™ Customers

​MAYS LANDING, N.J. (September 18, 2018) – A conservation period will be called Wednesday, September 19 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. for Atlantic City Electric customers participating in the Energy Wise Rewards Program.  

For participating customers, Atlantic City Electric will cycle the participants’ air conditioner compressors off and on 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 periods of peak electric demand, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage. Customers receive a one-time bill reduction of $50 when Atlantic City Electric installs the Energy Wise Rewards device in their home. Atlantic City Electric customers using Energy Wise Rewards can also save money by conserving energy.

Customers can learn more about Energy Wise Rewards by calling 1-866-355-4229 or visiting
