Enjoy the clean comfort of electric heating, cooling and water heating in your home and buildings, and save money and energy in the process.  Nishnabotna Valley REC offers you the opportunity to participate in Switch Makes Cents, a program that can save you money on your electric rate and on the purchase of qualifying new equipment.

Switch Makes Cents participants agree to have radio-controlled switches installed on qualifying equipment. When electric demand grows to certain levels, the switches cycle the equipment off and on to control electric demand, thus saving electricity and helping decrease electric costs. The equipment automatically returns to normal operation when the Cooperative’s electric demand decreases. Most Switch Makes Cents participants agree that comfort levels are maintained in the home even when the equipment is switched off periodically during high demand times.
