Already Enrolled in PowerNap Air Conditioning?

Members who are currently enrolled in the Traditional PowerNap Cycled Air Conditioning Program are eligible to switch to this rebate program. Upon registration and enrollment of the thermostat, Connexus Energy will send a technician to your home to bypass the radio control on the side of your house and remove you from the cycled program. Any credits already paid will remain in your account.
