For Immediate Release
SALISBURY, Md. - For customers participating in
Delmarva Power's voluntary Energy Wise
Rewards program, a conservation period will be called from 2 to 4 p.m.
Tuesday in order to test equipment.
Delmarva Power will cycle
participants' air conditioner compressors off and on for short intervals during
these hours. Due to minimal air conditioner use because of the anticipated mild
weather, customers are not expected to notice any significant change in
It may take up to a half-hour after
the test event ends at 4 p.m. for air conditioners to resume normal operations.
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
air conditioner compressors off and on for short periods during times of peak
electricity use. Customers will receive a bill reduction in return for allowing
Delmarva Power to cycle their air conditioners a few days each year.
