Based in San Antonio, CPS Energy is the largest municipally owned utility in the United States. San Antonio-area customers who purchase a Kühl air conditioner at Conn’s stores and enroll in the CPS Energy Kühl AC Program can receive up to $500 in savings, in the form of instant rebates and utility credits. Friedrich also recently partnered with ThinkEco to curtail energy use through Con Edison’s coolNYC demand response program in New York City.

“The Kühl is popular across the country for its energy-saving features with a mobile app, so we are very excited that it can make a difference in our hometown thanks to this partnership with CPS Energy and Conn’s,” said Wink Chapman, Friedrich vice president of sales and marketing.

Residents can purchase a Kühl air conditioner at San Antonio Conn’s stores at a discount price and also get a free wireless FriedrichLink adapter ($49 value) that enables residents to remotely control the A/C via mobile app, while also participating in the utility’s demand response program.

During conservation events, participating Kühl air conditioners will run at slightly higher settings that maintain cool and comfortable temperatures. Residents can always opt out of this voluntary program.

“Demand response saves consumers money and rewards them for reducing load at peak times,” said Ricardo Luna, Manager of Demand Management and Analysis at CPS Energy, the largest municipally owned utility in the United States. “We’re proud that the Kühl AC Program uses clean technology developed right here in San Antonio.”

Using energy efficiency technologies, CPS Energy has set a goal of reducing overall demand by 2020 by 771MW, saving the consumers money and eliminating the need for a new power plant. Friedrich is the first HVAC manufacturer to design window air conditioners featuring wireless technology that allows consumers to remotely control and adjust units via smartphones or tablets. The units come in A/C only and A/C + heat pump versions with capacities of 5,200 to 36,000 Btu/hr.
