For Immediate Release
- A test conservation period will be called from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on
Wednesday, May 28 for Delmarva Power's voluntary Energy Wise Rewards program in order to test the equipment prior to
the peak summer season.
those participating customers, Delmarva Power will cycle off 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 homes. 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 customers.
During summer periods of peak electric demand, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage by cycling
off air conditioner compressors for short periods during times of peak
electricity use. Customers receive bill reductions in return for allowing
Delmarva Power to cycle their air conditioners a few days each year.
Customers can learn more about Energy
Wise Rewards by calling 1-866-353-5799 or visiting www.delmarva.com/rewards.
