Residential Service Variable Price (RSVP) rate
Our special variable price is the cornerstone of the Energy Select program. The RSVP rate gives you the opportunity to pay a lower price for the electricity consumed in your household 87% of the time.
RSVP Rate Details
The RSVP rate features four variable prices that are based upon the time of day and time of week, with time periods that vary by season (summer and winter). It is designed so that you and your family can save money by using the bulk of your energy during the low and medium periods, when you will be paying less than the standard residential rate. The RSVP rate would take place on the following bill after installation.
That means with Energy Select, the price you pay for electricity is lower than the standard residential rate 87% of the time.
Customer programming portal
Our online portal makes programming your thermostat and connected appliances simple. You log in to program your central cooling and heating system, electric water heater and pool pump from the convenience of any computer, tablet or phone with Internet access. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Managing Your Energy Use
Our interactive energy management system allows you to program your central cooling and heating system, electric water heater and pool pump to automatically respond to the RSVP rate’s four variable prices. You can choose to run more in the lower price periods and less, or not at all in the higher price periods. It’s always your choice, and you are always in control.
And making changes is easy — you can program your equipment on your computer, tablet or smart phone, wherever you have internet access.
Our WiFi-enabled thermostat, along with timers for your applicable appliances, provides an easy way to take advantage of the RSVP rate by following your programming and responding to pricing signals.
Not Your Regular Thermostat
The Energy Select programmable thermostat, along with timers for your appliances, gives you control over your home’s central cooling and heating system, electric water heater and pool pump. You can program much of your home’s energy usage to fit your schedule and comfort level, while managing your level of energy conservation and monthly bill savings.
And our thermostat is no ordinary programmable thermostat. It has a price-response feature that allows you to program it to automatically respond to the price of electricity in effect at any given time. It does the thinking, and the saving, for you.
Your home's WiFi access
By using the secure WiFi signal in your home, your central cooling and heating system and controlled electric water heater and pool pump will all respond to your programmed settings.
Putting Your Internet Service to Work
The Customer Programming Portal, smart thermostat and your home’s WiFi are all key components of your energy management system. They work together to put you in control of your energy — how much you use, when you purchase it, and how much you purchase.
For new Energy Select customers, broadband internet service with secure WiFi is required.
