IMPORTANT NEWS FOR BERWICK ENERGY PARTNERS
For all of you who have signed up for Direct Load Control, we regret to announce that we are deferring implementation until later in 2017. Delays in getting Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approval for the Customer Premises Equipment applied extra time pressure, and your Berwick Electric Commission and AMG Energy, the company operating Direct Load Control on your behalf, decided that any excess haste could endanger smooth implementation and trouble free operation.
The semi-annual draws will still be held in June and December 2017 and all Berwick Energy Partners will be eligible. Please stay tuned.
For further information, call AMG Energy at 902.542.5223 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org The good folks at AMG Energy will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
