Delmarva Power customers will have an opportunity to save money and energy by reducing their electric use on Friday, July 19, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
An increased demand for electricity throughout the Mid-Atlantic region is anticipated for Friday. While the region’s power supply is expected to be sufficient to meet high demand, Delmarva Power customers are encouraged to conserve energy and save money on this Peak Savings Day.
Delmarva Power customers can earn bill credits on a Peak Savings Day through the Peak Energy Savings Credit Program. Customers participate simply by saving energy during the specified hours—no enrollment is needed.
For customers participating in Energy Wise Rewards®, Delmarva Power will cycle air conditioners during a Peak Savings Day. This means that Delmarva Power will send a signal to the participant’s thermostat or outdoor switch to cycle the air conditioner compressors off and on based on the customer-selected cycling level. Because the air conditioner fan will continue to run, customers may not notice a temperature change in their home. It may take up to a half-hour after the period ends for air conditioners to resume normal operations.
