How I Save on Electricity

Last fall I signed up for the Dominion Power Smart Cooling Rewards Program to get a rebate check in return for allowing them to cycle my air conditioner on and off during peak periods. I just remembered this now that summer has arrived.
Click here to sign up if you also want to be rewarded for conserving energy!

How the Smart Cooling Rewards program works

  • Dominion will install an A/C cycling switch on your home’s outdoor cooling system. Since the work is performed on your outdoor unit, you don’t even need to be home during installation. We provide the equipment, and the installation is free.
  • During periods of high electrical use between June 1 and September 30, Dominion may cycle your home’s cooling system on and off at defined intervals. Your fan will stay on, circulating already cooled air.
  • Cycling times are limited to weekdays (no weekends or holidays) typically for 2-4 hours between the hours of 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the program.

I am looking forward to my $40.00 check at the end of the summer!
