Cape Light Compact is seeking participants for its Smart A/C Savings program, which offers incentives for residential customers with central air conditioning (central A/C) or mini-split heat pumps (MSHP) to reduce their air conditioning use during select periods of high demand, called Demand Response Events (Events).

For Reward and Program Details, select your air conditioning type below:

Mini-Split Heat Pump Offer

Central A/C Offer


The program will work with a compatible Wi-Fi thermostat or mini-split heat pump unit to control your air conditioning remotely and reduce usage during periods of high energy demand. On especially hot and humid days of the summer where air conditioning electric load is at its peak, which in turn puts a strain on the electric grid, the Compact may call an Event. These events may be called between June 1 and September 30 during the hours of 10 am and 9 pm and will last between 4 – 6 hours**.

Notification will be sent to participants via email and an in-app message prior to each Event, and participants can override the automatic set point adjustments at any time.

**Each event will be called for a 4 hour period. However, your thermostat may not be adjusted back to its pre-Event setting until up to two hours after the event in order to prevent all participants’ A/C units from coming back online at one time.
