How it works
Joining the Peak Energy Rewards Program is voluntary, and means you’ll join a community of like-minded people who don’t mind making small changes around the house to reduce their energy consumption during peak events. Not only do these small changes ensure energy is affordable and reliable when we all need it most, they also establish sustainable long-term habits that benefit the community in the long run.
Peak events are times when, because of weather or other circumstances, there’s a high demand for energy on the grid. Peak events usually only last from one to three hours.
We’ll text you when a peak event is scheduled so you’re in the loop, and if you opt-in, you can choose to reduce or shift your usage for the duration of the event. That might mean adjusting your air-conditioner a few degrees or waiting until the event has passed to use appliances like a washing machine or electric oven. See more small ways to make big differences.
After an event is over, we’ll send you an email report of your usage and reward you with bill credits if you meet your energy reduction targets.
Participation in events is voluntary. We’ll send an SMS asking if you’ll participate, and you simply need to reply YES to confirm you’re in.
