Important! Enrollment in this program is no longer open.

The Summer Cycler program is a voluntary, legacy energy management program that briefly cycles select appliances in participating homes during periods of peak electricity demand. Summer Cycler participants earn bill credits up to $28 per cooling season from June through September.

Vectren installed a small, radio-controlled device on the appliance(s) at no charge. Then, during times of peak load and if needed, the device(s) are activated to briefly cycle off these 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 6 p.m.
