Load Management

TheSwitchCentral Georgia EMC’s Load Management Control Program for Energy Efficiency

You can receive up to a $30 per year credit on your power bill for participation in this program.

What is Load Management ?

Load management is your silent partner in holding down the cost of electricity. The switch turns your water heater off for typically up to five hours and/or your central air conditioner off for 71/2 minutes out of every half-hour. The peak demand periods usually occur only a few days each summer and last for a few hours. To date, more than 8,000 load management switches have been installed in homes by qualified service technicians. The majority of load management participants are never inconvenienced by the switch. Most customers actually forget it’s connected after a few months because there is no change in the hot water availability or comfort level in the house. In exchange for your voluntary participation in the Load Management program, you’ll get a yearly credit to your bill of up to $30.00 per year

Help Central Georgia EMC Hold Down Costs

Central Georgia EMC purchases wholesale power based on the number of kilowatt-hours used during peak demand periods. By joining the program you help Central Georgia EMC hold down the cost of providing power. These savings are passed on to you in the form of a yearly credit up to $30.00 per year on your power bill, lower operating costs and reduced future rate increases.
