Sign Up for PowerShift

Steuben County REMC knows the importance of energy efficiency, so we operate a program called PowerShift®. This program offers a $45 bill credit for participation ($15 June, $15 July, $15 August) per installed switch. The program is aimed at controlling peak energy costs and keeping your electric rates to a minimum. The program guidelines are outlined below:

  • Program runs from June through September               
  • When needed the switches can operate Monday through Friday during 2:00 to 8:00 pm time frame
  • Will NOT operate during weekends or holidays
  • Switch will operate in 15 minute intervals allowing your A/C to cycle on and off to maintain temperature and comfort levels
  • A/C switches, pool pump switches and water heater switches available (water heater switches do not qualify for incentives)
  • Window-mounted A/C units do not apply
  • Pool pump only applies to permanent below- or above-ground pools, and must be wired into a designated electrical circuit
  • Switches must be installed by May 15 in order to receive credit for that year
  • Registrations received following May 15 will be installed later in the year, and credit will not be applied until the following year

We will have our qualified electricians install your switch when they are in your area. You do not need to be home for this installation (unless you request to) since the switch is located on the exterior of your home.

**Note: This is the physical location where the switch will be installed, not necessarily the address at which you receive your bill.
