How does the program work? Once you are enrolled in peaksaverPLUS, a technician will come to your home at a convenient time to install a small load management device on your central air conditioner, electric water heater or inground pool pump. Once the device is installed, it can be remotely activated to slightly reduce your appliance’s electricity demand. The program will never be activated on weekends or statutory holidays.
