03-20-10  Coolkeepers  Keeping your cool on a 100-degree summer day takes a lot of juice. It's when demand for electricity to run air conditioning spikes. That's why Rocky Mountain Power has promoted its Cool Keepers program. In exchange for allowing the power company to install a device that cuts electricity to air conditioners during peak consumption hours, the consumer gets an annual or pro-rated credit. The utility may turn the compressor off for as long as 15 minutes in each half hour between 2pm and 8pm weekdays from June 1 to August 31. Even when the compressor is off, the blower can continue to circulate residual cool air (especially from the basement). Go to http://www.coolkeeper.net/ for details and enroll.
