When you participate in the Energy Smart EasyCool Program, you will be making a difference by easing the demand on the electrical grid and helping to manage the cost of electricity. By helping to ensure a continual supply of energy for you and your neighbors, you will receive $40 every year you participate. Sign up for EasyCool today and be on your way to an easy $40!
Install your free equipment
A trained Energy Smart advisor will install an A/C cycling or “smart” switch on your outdoor air conditioning unit or heat pump system. Since the work is performed on your outdoor unit, you don’t need to be home during installation. We provide the equipment and the installation is free.
The EasyCool device is only activated on select summer weekdays. When it is activated, your air conditioner will still operate, but for about half as long, while allowing the fan to circulate already cooled air. This occurs during the summer season between June 1 and Sept. 30. Typically, cycling will occur two to four hours per event between 2-6 p.m. and will not occur on weekends or holidays.
Receive your $40 every year you participate
Qualifying homeowners will receive $40 following each summer season they participate. Yearly participation is automatic after your initial enrollment.
Some additional requirements include:
- Homeowners or renters with a central air conditioner or heat pump system.
- If you rent your home, please click here to download the Landlord Authorization Form.
- Your working air conditioner or heat pump system must be on or near the ground floor.
