Program available in:
When demand for electricity is the highest, help save energy and earn up to $40 annually by joining MidAmerican Energy’s SummerSaverSM program.

How it works

The SummerSaver program runs from June 1 to September 30. By participating in this program with a smart thermostat, you agree to allow MidAmerican to control your air conditioning unit through your home’s Wi-Fi on the hottest weekdays (no weekends or holidays) between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. – or for shorter periods within those hours. You will earn a $40 annual bill credit in return!

Participation is voluntary and easy: 

Already participating with a load control receiver (LCR) on your A/C?

Many customers already participate with LCR devices, a small cycling device on 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 compressor on and off. As an LCR participant, you will receive a $20 end-of-season bill credit. These devices are no longer being installed and will be removed as they reach the end of their useful life (typically 10-15 years).
Caution: SummerSaver is not recommended for households with occupants who have health problems such as asthma, heart disease or respiratory conditions.
