The purpose of the Load Shedding Program is to reduce Columbia’s peak demand through voluntary curtailment of loads at the customer level during peak afternoon periods. Participation in the Load Shedding program is open to all commercial and industrial customers who have demand levels of 250 kilowatts (kW) or higher during any month between June and September.
Columbia Water & Light provides inspection services to our commercial customers to help identify opportunities to be more energy efficient. Services include Infrared Thermography and Compressed Air Leak Detection.
The Tree Power program promotes energy conservation through energy-efficient landscaping. When you sign up for the program, Columbia Water & Light will provide a free shade tree and visit your property to make a recommendation about the best place to plant your tree.
Load Management reduces peak electric demand during the hottest afternoons of the summer, when air conditioning load is the greatest and the cost of electricity is at its highest. A Load Management Switch on your electric meter will help you save up to 3% on your summer electric bills.
