Add a switch and SAVE

Posted on Jun 09 2016 in Marshall County REMC

Energy management is our silent partner in holding down the cost of electricity. You can add a switch and save with residential load management.

Energy management reduces the amount of electricity used in your home 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.

How does it work?

When energy use is at its peak, a signal will be sent to cycle down the water heater and cooling units for short periods of time. You’ll still have plenty of hot water and the inside temperature of your home shouldn’t be compromised.Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 10.08.57 AM

How is this helping?

By getting as many people as possible to participate, we’re reducing peak demand when energy is the most expensive, and that means we can help reduce greenhouse emissions. So in the end, we all benefit.
