Members can help hold down the cost of electricity by managing their energy consumption with a load control switch. 

Energy management reduces the amount of electricity used during peak periods (when it is the most expensive to generate). When periods of peak demand occur, Marshall County REMC can automatically signal your water heater and central air conditioning/heat pump cooling unit to reduce energy consumption for short periods of time. 

You can choose to have a switch installed on your air conditioner, water heater, pool pump or all, which maximizes the bill credits you will receive. The switch will not activate on weekends or holidays, and most people don’t even know the difference. There is no cost to you for the installation of the switch. 

Participation credits:

  • Electric water heater: $9/month in July, August and September
  • Air conditioner: $15/month in July, August and September
  • Pool pump: $15/month in July, August and September
