Power Tools℠ for Homeowners and Renters

Manage energy and save money


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, CoolCents®.

How it works: An IPL representative will install the CoolCents® device on the outside of your home near your air conditioner. The device allows IPL the ability to briefly and moderately reduce your air conditioner's cycle time during peak electricity usage periods in May through September.

How to start: Call us  at 1.800.305.0982 or click below to enroll now. 


Additional information:
To be eligible, you must have a central air conditioner or a heat pump and,

  • own and live in a single family residence, OR
  • live in a separately metered residence and have your landlord's consent.

Typically, IPL will not cycle your air conditioner on weekends, holidays or after 6 p.m. on weekdays. Air conditioners cycle, meaning they run for a certain amount of time "on," and then shut "off." This on-off cycling maintains the temperature at a certain level. When activated, the CoolCents® device shortens the number of minutes your air conditioner is "on."  This cycling will normally take place only for a few hours during the day and for only a few days during the summer.  For more information, check out the CoolCents® FAQ.
