|Energy Management Program
We’re all concerned about the rising cost of energy.
Now Southern Indiana Power is offering you an opportunity to do something about it by participating in our energy management program. The program’s aim is to help Southern Indiana Power better manage costs, use energy wisely, reduce the need to build new power plants, and help the environment all of which can help lessen the impact of future rate increases.
By participating, you allow Southern Indiana Power to install a switch that we can use to remotely operate your electric water heater and central air conditioner or heat pump during times when demand for electricity is at its peak. These peak periods are also the times when wholesale electricity costs the most. Reducing peak demand helps reduce costs for you and for Southern Indiana Power.
The energy management switch normally operates for only a few hours on a limited number of the hottest and coldest days of the year. Since water heaters act as storage devices, there should be no loss of hot water. For air conditioning, the outdoor compressor unit is cycled for brief periods while the circulation fan continues to operate.
We’ll even give you up to $60 in bill credits to participate six months of $5 bill credits for energy management of your water heater, and three months of $10 bill credits for your air conditioner or heat pump.
Southern Indiana Power technicians will install and maintain the switch at no cost to you. (An example of the switch is shown at right.) If you are ever dissatisfied or inconvenienced, we will remove the switch. At electric cooperatives around the country, these energy management programs have proven to be successful and effective.
