HOW IT WORKS
See for yourself how the PowerShift program can help make electricity more affordable in your local electric co-op.
The PowerShift Program Point-by-Point
Simply put, the PowerShift program is an easy way to keep electricity more affordable for everyone. Here’s a six-point breakdown of how it works, and how members benefit.
When energy demand increases, so does its price.
That means it costs the co-op more, and can even result in expensive new power plant construction.
When you sign up for the PowerShift program, you’ll shift your energy use to times when electricity demand—and cost—is lower.
Using electricity when it’s less expensive helps the co-op spend less money on wholesale power costs.
That means everyone benefits when you enroll in the PowerShift program.
And as a thank you, we offer incentives to make sure it’s worth your while.
WHAT AND WHY
The PowerShift program is a simple way for our members to help control the demand for electricity when it’s most expensive. And participation is easy: When you sign up, one of our technicians will install a switch free of charge. Once installed, the switch automatically reduces your home’s energy demand.
Most members never notice, and it requires no maintenance on your part. But as subtle as it is, it still makes a huge difference to the co-op, allowing us to respond to high energy demand in a planned and economical way.
