The SimpleSaver program is another way that Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Kentucky are working to keep your electricity affordable and our environment healthy. We will give you a one-time $10 bill credit up front after the installation of your direct load control switch(es), with another $20 annually for each central air conditioner you enroll. Sign up your 40-gallon or greater electric water heater and receive an additional $10 annual credit. That may not sound like a lot of money, but consider that the program costs you nothing; no effort, no inconvenience and no discomfort.
Why are we willing to pay you?
Because limiting electric use at peak times during the summer or winter delays the construction of expensive new power plants and helps to keep our fuel costs down which helps keep your energy costs affordable. Managing peak load also decreases Kentucky's carbon footprint and gives all of us more time to explore new affordable sources of renewable energy.
