Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question for Appalachian Power? We may already have the answer. Here are a few of the most common, or click the button below to view all FAQs.

What is Home Performance?

Home Performance is a program that allows homeowners to work toward a score of 10 for their home at their own pace. Customers earn rebates on qualified energy efficiency upgrades and can re-engage with the program as many times as needed to achieve their home’s best possible Home Performance.

How does the Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) program work?

When you enroll in the BYOT Program, Appalachian Power will automatically adjust the thermostat's temperature by a few degrees on peak days when energy consumption is high, usually on the hottest days of summer.

Air conditioners typically run for a certain amount of time "on" and then shut "off“ when the desired temperature is met. During an event, the BYOT Program shortens the number of minutes your air conditioner is "on,” resulting in energy savings for you.

There is a maximum of 15 non-emergency events in a summer season. Events can occur Monday through Friday between noon and 8 p.m. (no events will take place on weekends or holidays). The average event lasts approximately two hours.

How much does it cost to participate in the Non-Lighting Business Program?

There is no cost to participate in the Appalachian Power Non-Lighting Program either as a customer or a participating contractor.
