Smart Usage Rewards

Earn rewards when you work with a Smart Usage Partner to reduce your energy use during the summer.

About Smart Usage

Get rewarded for decreasing energy use during the summer, when the demand for energy is at a yearly high. Using less energy helps reduce strain on the energy grid and ensures everyone has safe and reliable power when they need it the most.

This program is free and available to Con Edison customers in New York City and Westchester. There is no cost to enroll or participate, and you may opt out at any time.

How it Works

Step 1: Choose and enroll with a Smart Usage Partner.
Find a partner

Step 2: Receive alerts about energy events.

An energy event is a period of high energy demand. Your Smart Usage Partner will notify you when one occurs so that you can reduce your energy use temporarily.

Step 3: Reduce your energy.

Reducing energy usage during an energy event earns you rewards. This may include raising the temperature setting on your A/C or thermostat to a warmer, but comfortable, temperature; turning off lights in empty rooms; and shifting use of large appliances, such as your washer/dryer, dishwasher, and electric oven.

Step 4: Redeem rewards.

You’ll receive information on how to redeem through your Smart Usage Partner.
