Stay comfortable. Strengthen the community. Get a $25 bill credit.

The Smart Response A/C Program is a free, voluntary opportunity for cooperative members like you to help conserve electricity within your community during times of peak demand. It also helps delay the need for building new power plants, which in turn keeps costs steady.

As an added bonus for participating, you'll get a one-time $25 credit on your electric bill.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

To start, a switch is installed on your central A/C unit. Then, during peak times, a signal is sent to the switch through power lines, which then deactivates the compressor for a few minutes per hour as necessary. The fan continues to circulate air throughout your home to maintain a comfortable temperature until the compressor returns to normal operations. Most members never even notice a difference in the cooling of their homes.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

A representative will contact you to schedule your free installation
