Saver's Switch
Your environmentally friendly plan
What it is

Saver's Switch gives you reduced electricity bills in exchange for cutting back on service during peak demand.

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.
How it works
You'll stay cool and comfortable. 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 furnace 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.
