As the humidity and temperatures have risen over the past few days, PECO has announced changes to their Smart A/C Saver program starting June 1, 2013.
80,000 customers enrolled in the program have been notified that the annual incentive for participation in the program will be cut from $120 to $80. Under the program participants will now be credited $20 per month on their utility bills during this upcoming summer months of June through September. Last year the monthly incentive stood at $30 per month.
The Smart A/C Saver program utilizes radio controlled switches, know as Digital Cycling Units (DCU), installed in conjunction with customer’s central air conditioning units, that allow the utility to cycle the air conditioning compressors off for 15 minute intervals during what the utility calls “conservation events”. The program curtails supply demand on the power grid during peak demand periods. There were 51 hours of such events during last year’s summer season, and PECO has announced that fewer such events are planned for this summer.
