All PeakRewards Air Conditioning program participants will be cycled up to 50% from 2 pm – 6 pm on Wednesday, September 6 with air conditioners returning to normal operation within 1 hour of the event. If you would like to override cycling during the Energy Savings Day, please call the customer hotline at 888.309.PEAK (7325).If you are enrolled in the Connected Rewards program, you will have your thermostat raised up to 4 degrees between the hours of 2 pm – 6 pm.
