How does it work?
The Summer Cycler program is part of Vectren's commitment to providing you with reliable, low-cost energy while promoting a healthier environment and more efficient use of our resources. Vectren will provide a $5 credit for each electric air conditioning unit and a $2 credit for each electric water heater you enroll. The Vectren Summer Cycler program is available to all its residential and commercial electric service customers. However, customers must enroll an air conditioning unit in the Summer Cycler program to be eligible to also enroll an electric water heater.
Why does Vectren have a Summer Cycler program?
By cycling off major electric appliances for short periods of time, we can trim peak power demand with little or no customer discomfort or inconvenience.
How does Summer Cycler affect my electric appliance(s)?
Upon enrollment, Vectren will mount a small, radio-controlled device on your home. Then, during times of peak load and if needed, the device will be activated to briefly cycle off participating appliances to conserve energy. The device works just like a home thermostat, so there is no danger of damage to the appliance(s). The cycling off period typically only occurs for a few minutes at a time during several hours of a day on days of peak electric demand, which usually occurs between noon and 5 p.m.
