How does Wadsworth Peak Rewards work?

When you enroll, we'll connect an indoor Peak Rewards web-programmable thermostat or an outdoor switch near your central air conditioning unit. On selected days from June through September (Peak Savings Days), we'll automatically cycle participating central air conditioners to help balance the region's demand for electricity. These events are known as "conservation periods".
