Radio Control Switch (RCS) Rebate
A radio-controlled switch (RCS) is a device that is installed on select air conditioning and electric water heater systems. The purpose of the radio-controlled switch is to help prevent the cooperative from exceeding a preset maximum amount of power being consumed by all member loads combined, called a peak. During a peak alert, when the electric use is extremely high, the RCS turns off power to the air conditioning and electric water heater systems in effort to keep rates stable by reducing the peak demand.
EXISTING A/C EQUIPMENT AND WATER HEATERS WITHOUT A PREVIOUSLY INSTALLED Radio Control Switch (RCS) and no rebate issued = $25.00 initial account credit + $5.00 account credit per month during peak months (June-August)
- After receipt the application will be scheduled in the order in which it was received. The consumer will be contacted to set an appointment for installation of the RCS.
- Multiple switches can be installed on multiple appliances. Maximum of $25.00 initial account credit per household. Maximum of $15.00 account credit per year during peak months.
- The RCS must remain operational for the life of the equipment.
