A PeakRewards preseason cycling event has been scheduled.
A preseason cycling event will occur in late April to test our system operations as well as our customer communications. To minimize potential customer inconvenience, the event will occur between 10 am and 2 pm. You will not be able to override participation in the preseason cycling event. If you are enrolled in the PeakRewards Air Conditioning program, your central air conditioner or electric heat pump will be cycled up to your chosen cycling level (50%, 75%, or 100%) for the duration of the event. If you are enrolled in the PeakRewards Electric Water Heater program, the electricity to your water heater will be interrupted for the duration of the event.
