Hot summer days mean increased air conditioning use, which pushes demand for electricity to a peak. By participating in our Saver's Switch program, you'll help us manage these peaks by cutting back just a little on the time your central air works to cool your home.
In exchange for your participation, you'll receive savings on your electric charges each year you participate in Saver's Switch.
Sign up online or call 800-895-4999 to enroll.
On a few hot summer days a year, Xcel Energy may activate Saver's Switch. The switch cycles your air conditioner off and on generally at 15-to-20 minute intervals. However, the fan stays on, circulating already-cooled air throughout your home.
Most customers don't even notice when Saver's Switch is activated. On control days, Saver's Switch is typically activated between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
