Smart Usage Rewards for Reducing Demand

We will pay you to temporarily reduce your electric usage. For every 100 kilowatts (kW) you reduce your usage by, you’ll be able to earn up to $18,000 a year. You can either enroll in 21 Hour Notifications, which ask you to reduce your usage 21 hours in advance, or in 2 Hour or Less Notifications, which give you two hours of notice. Either way, by reducing your electric usage, you’ll be helping maintain system reliability in your community.


Eligibility Requirements

  • Participants must have a communicating interval meter.
  • Customers may be eligible to participate in both programs simultaneously.

Application Process

For full program rules, read through our Rider T tariff (PDF).

Enrollments will be accepted up to April 1 for a May 1 start date and up to May 2 for a June 1 start date.

We encourage you to apply through an Aggregator (PDF). If you are able to reduce by 50 kW or more, you can also apply directly with Con Edison.
