Called Cycling Events
Appalachian Power would like to thank you for your participation in the Residential Peak Reduction Program! During periods of peak energy demand, Appalachian Power may call a "cycling event", during which Appalachian Power will activate the device on program participants' air conditioning units so the compressor runs at 50 percent cycling.
Cycling events can occur on weekdays from May to September, between the hours of noon and 8 p.m. Appalachian Power will not call a cycling event on holidays or weekends, and cycling events will not exceed six hours.
Below is a list of cycling events called in 2019:
