How the Program Works

How the Program WorksEnergy Wise Rewards works by cycling your central air conditioner or heat pump over short intervals (conservation periods) on selected summer days (called Peak Savings Days).

When Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods occur, air continues to be circulated throughout your home by the air conditioner fan. The cycling option you choose determines how long your compressor will not operate (or rest) during each Energy Wise Rewards conservation period.

Energy Wise Rewards is only activated during times of high electricity demand. Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods typically occur on Peak Savings Days, June through October. Total conservation periods over the season usually amount to less than 1% of the year.
