CoolCents is an energy management program that rewards customers for enabling IPL to better manage electricity demand. During warmer months, like May through September, electricity usage peaks when homes across central Indiana are running air conditioning units at higher levels and colder temperatures. When IPL has the ability to briefly and moderately reduce air conditioning cycle time during these peak demand periods, everyone can benefit.
How it works: Receive a $5 credit on your monthly electric bill each month from June through September (up to $20 total) for your participation in IPL's air conditioning management program from May through September.
How to start: New enrollments require a smart thermostat. If you already have a smart thermostat installed, enrollment is easy. All you have to do is register. Learn more about rebates and the benefits of installing a smart thermostat.

If you enrolled in the CoolCents program before December 2017 and have the original AC switch installed, now is a great time to upgrade your savings as well as your thermostat. IPL is offering a free smart thermostat to customers already enrolled in CoolCents. This Wi-Fi-enabled smart device will help you better manage the comfort of your home, your energy use and spending.
If you're not quite ready to switch to a smart thermostat, it's still a great time to update your AC switch to the more efficient, 2nd generation smart switch.
