Cool Returns Air Conditioning Rebates
The Cooperative offers a $100 rebate on whole-house air conditioning units that are in good working condition and have been installed for less than 10 years.
The rebate is contingent upon the installation of a Washington Electric Cooperative radio-controlled switch on the A/C unit. These switches are provided and installed by the cooperative at no cost. The switch cycles the cooling compressor on the A/C unit during times of peak energy demands, which are typically from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on only a few summer days. Essentially, the switch “shuts off” your compressor for a brief period of time. This does not control your thermostat or air handler, or harm your cooling system. It simply cycles the compressor of your cooling unit for brief periods of time. Cool air continues to circulate through your home. Cycling periods are so brief that current program participants rarely experience a change in comfort.
