Cool Returns

Darke REC's Cool Returns program helps keep members’ bills in check during the hottest times of the year. 

With the installation of a radio-controlled switch, the energy consumption of your air-conditioning system will automatically be dialed down during times of peak demand—usually from about 2-6 p.m. on the hottest days of the year.

This helps you save money on your bill while helping us reduce stress on the electric grid. Load management periods are typically very brief, and the comfort of your home should not be affected. 

The switch does not control your thermostat or harm your air-conditioning system.
