Alliant Energy to cycle air conditioners across state on Friday

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Alliant Energy says it will be cycling air conditioners on and off all across Iowa on Friday for customers participating in an energy savings program.

From 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., customers participating in the program will have the condenser unit inside their air conditioner remotely turned off and on in 15 minute intervals. 

The program is in place when the demand for electricity grows because of sustained high temperatures. 

Customers who participate in the program receive $8 per month from June through September whether or not their air conditioner is cycled or not.

There is a similar program for electric water heaters that gives customers a $2 per month discount.  That program is also included in Tuesday's event.

The appliance cycling program is not initiated on weekends or holidays.
