MEC Seeking Demand Reduction Program Participants!
Midstate Electric Cooperative launched an 18-month peak demand reduction pilot program called PEAK HOUR REWARDS in 2017. The purpose of the program was to try to minimize our wholesale power costs by shifting peak time electric usage (typically between 7am and 9am October - April) to non-peak periods. The findings of the pilot program would be used to determine if a full-scale program would be viable.
After reviewing the data from the pilot program, MEC has made the decision to continue our Peak Hour Rewards Program for another year. We would like to thank participants for helping make our pilot program a success by participating in our demand reduction events. The program shows great potential to reduce our peak load.
MEC is looking for additional members to participate in the program. Participants will receive a free Wi-Fi programmable thermostat ($100 value) and a complimentary home energy audit. Each month that participants take part in 100% of the peak usage demand reduction events, they will be entered into a monthly drawing for (2) $250 bill credits.
If you own your own home, heat with a heat pump or electric forced air furnace, have Wi-Fi and would like to participate in the program, please contact our marketing department at 541-536-2126, option 5. Reducing our peak usage helps us all!
Enroll by October 31, 2018 and be entered in an additional drawing for a $100 bill credit!
