Do your part to save energy by allowing us to control the operation of your home air conditioner compressor or air-source heat pump when the demand for electricity is the highest. SummerSaver is a voluntary program for MidAmerican Energy's Iowa, Illinois and South Dakota residential electric customers.
Here's how it works
MidAmerican Energy installs a small cycling device on the siding of your home near the central air conditioning unit. The device is wired into your existing thermostat control circuit and acts as a switch, allowing us to cycle your air conditioner or air-source heat pump on and off only on the hottest weekdays from June 1 to Sept. 30 between approximately 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., or for shorter periods between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., depending on actual need (but never on weekends or holidays).
SummerSaver incentive and how to participate
As a participant, you will receive a $40 end-of-season incentive the first year and a $30 incentive in following years, if you participate the entire cycling season. If participation ends during the four-month period, MidAmerican Energy will prorate your incentive accordingly.
To participate, call 800-437-2976 and an enrollment card will be mailed to you. Participation is limited and is available on a first-come first-served basis.
Caution: SummerSaver is not recommended for households with occupants who have health problems such as asthma, heart disease or respiratory conditions.
Call 800-437-2976, weekdays, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
