New Jersey Program offered through JCP&L
A friend asked us about a new Power Company Program offered through JCP&L called "EasyGreen". The "Easy Green program may save residential customers up to $60 a year. The savings doubles if you have two central air conditioning units. The level of savings depends on a variety of factors, varying from home to home."
"Most of the time, EasyGreen will not be managing your central air conditioner. On the 10 to 20 hottest days, when regional energy consumption is high, EasyGreen will be activated and the temperature inside your home will increase to the level you agreed to." The customer agreement is for 6°-9° higher than your thermostat is set at. For more information about the "Easy Green" Program, refer to the JCPL website.
California has a similar program, called SmartAC. “In the summer, hundreds of thousands of air conditioners operating at the same time can sometimes push California's electrical system beyond capacity. These circumstances could result in a power interruption due to a state or local energy supply emergency. Effectively managing electric demand during these occasional peaks is a responsible way to help prevent power interruptions.”
Customers participating in this program allow their air conditioning units to automatically cycle, reducing energy consumption. SmartAC is installed on or near your air conditioner and can be activated remotely.
"When activated, your AC will do what it would normally do for about 15 minutes of every half hour-make cool air. For the other 15 minutes, your system fan will circulate already cool air and your AC will make cool air again when the next 15-minute cycle begins. SmartAC technology is installed by a certified technician and maintained for free as long as you participate in the SmartAC program."
Load Management Programs include Central Air Conditioner 50% Control - where the air conditioner compressor is cycled off for brief periods. The circulating fan continues to run and comfort levels are not affected. Central Air Conditioner 100% Control - air conditioner compressors are turned off for the entire load management period. "Fans will continue to operate but air will not be cooled. These homes will get hot."
