New program needs pilot participants

SMECO launched an electric water heater load management pilot in August. Participants in the program will have a load management device installed on their water heater. On days of high electricity usage, SMECO will perform conservation events, which would reduce the amount of load used by water heaters for a short period of time. Events would only happen Monday through Friday. Pilot participants should not notice any difference in the amount of hot water available for use.

Eligible customer-members who are interested in participating in the pilot will receive a one-time $25 credit on their SMECO electric bill for the installation of the load management device. In addition, participating customers receive $25 in annual credits while participating in the pilot. The $25 annual credit will be divided per month and applied as a credit on the SMECO monthly bill.

Who is eligible to participate?

The electric water heater pilot program is available to residential customer-members in Charles County.

How can you sign up?
