Unhappy with BGE's Peak Rewards Program?
The Sun has received scores of phone calls today from BGE customers whose homes became unbearably (or at least uncomfortably) hot today as their air conditioning compressors were cycled on and off by the utility. Many were then even more irked by their inability to reach anyone at the utility who could field a complaint.
Nine people phoned in complaints to the Public Service Commission.
BGE responded by moving everyone on the program to the 50 percent level for the rest of the emergency.
What do you think? Is the Peak rewards Program a bust because, in extraordinary weather like this, our homes (I'm a Peak Rewards customer, too) get hot when BGE cyles the AC?
Or, are we wimps for not being able to endure a little heat in a program that we signed up for, and for which we have received payments ever since, whether it was activated or not?
