Description

 

The Pacific Gas and Electric SmartAC program installs a SmartAC device on a resident air conditioner (AC) free of charge and the resident will receive $50 for participating. In case of an energy shortage from May 1 - October 31, a signal is sent to the SmartAC device directing the AC to run at a lower capacity. Residential participants with SmartAC switch Technology may experience no more than 50 percent reduction in the air conditioner average run time. During a SmartAC event, if the thermostat calls for the air conditioner to make cool air, the AC will ig0re that signal for approximately 15 minutes. At all other times, the AC will respond Normally, and make cool air. Events can last no more than 6 hours per day and for no more than 100 total hours per season. In order to participate in this program, the residence must have standard central air conditioners and/or heat pumps.
