As we approach the summer, the season with the highest demand for electricity, Atlantic City Electric is promoting Energy Wise Rewards for residential customers within the company’s service territory. 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 the customer.

During summer periods of peak electric demand, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage by cycling central air conditioner compressors off for short periods of time during periods of peak electricity use. By participating in Energy Wise Rewards, customers can reduce stress on the electrical system while helping the environment.

Customers will receive a one-time $50 bill reduction in return for allowing Atlantic City Electric to cycle their air conditioners a few days each year. As of April 30th, 37,600 customers have signed up for Energy Wise Rewards.
