Earn up to $117 per year in bill credits

Posted on Feb 27 2020 in Marshall County REMC

When you join us in this effort to reduce energy use at key times of the day, we’ll reward you with up to $117 per year in bill credits. 

You can choose to have a switch installed on your air conditioner, water heater, pool pump or all, which maximize the bill credits you will receive. 

Bill credits will be awarded as follows: 

  • 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

There is no cost to you for the installation of the switch. 

The switch only operates for very short periods of time, so you should not experience any loss of hot water or temperature change in your home during a “peak” event.

How does this 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. 

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 keep energy costs low, as well as help reduce greenhouse emissions. So, in the end, we all benefit.
