Cycled Central Air Conditioning is a free energy conservation program. If you sign up, Stearns Electric Association will install and activate a small radio receiver near your air conditioner that cycles the central air on and off in 15-minute intervals during peak demand days. Control times may be as many as 20-25 days per year and usually occur in the late afternoons and early evenings. Because your furnace fan continues to circulate cool air, most people don’t notice that the air conditioner is being cycled.

 

The cycled air conditioning program is your opportunity to take advantage of the lower EnergyWise® rate, or receive a credit in July, August, and September, while still keeping your home cool and comfortable.

 

CYCLED CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING REQUIREMENTS AND BENEFITS: 

  • Central Air Conditioner needs to be 240 Volt.
  • Stearns Electric Association can provide the contractor for the installation of the radio receiver at no charge. Or, members can hire their own contractor and receive a $100 rebate for enrolling on the program.
  • Program Incentive: $7.50 credit in July, August, and September.
