For members who own a smart thermostat or an electric vehicle (EV), DEC has opportunities for you to take your energy conservation to the next level. Sign up for our Beat the Peak with Thermostats or our Beat the Peak with EVs program to help the Co-op keep rates affordable for all members in our service territory! When you sign up for our Beat the Peak with Thermostats program, DEC will be able to remotely adjust your thermostat by only a few degrees to help reduce energy usage when the cost to produce power is high. Members who sign up will receive an initial $25 billing credit, as well as an additional $5 monthly billing credit from June through September. EV owners can participate in our Beat the Peak with EVs program by not charging their electric vehicle during peak alerts. To participate, members can download the Optiwatt app and create an account. Once your account has been created, you can connect your EV to DEC’s charging program to receive notifications to avoid charging your EV during peak alert hours. Members who sign up for the program will receive a one-time billing credit of $100, as well as an additional $5 monthly billing credit during the summer months. These programs are just two of the many ways members can help the Co-op conserve energy and keep the cost of electricity low for all members. To sign up, visit beatthepeak.coop! With your help, DEC can continue to provide reliable electric service at affordable rates.
