Smart Usage Rewards
When the demand for energy peaks during the summer, we’ll reward you for reducing your electric use temporarily. These small, simple changes in how you use energy help reduce strain on the grid and help us ensure that every customer has safe, reliable power when they need it most.
How It Works
Get started by signing up with an aggregator, a verified company that works with Con Edison. Your aggregator will alert you to reduce your electric use in advance when we anticipate high energy usage. These "events" are scheduled due to peak demand and energy grid emergencies, which typically last four hours and occur four to five times throughout the summer.
When you get the alert, you can earn rewards by doing things like turning off your lights and shifting use of your large appliances or equipment—such as your HVAC; elevator banks; refrigeration, cooking, and cleaning equipment — or supplementing with onsite generation, until after the event ends. Your aggregator will work with you to determine the best strategies you can use to reduce your energy. It’s that simple.
Rewards vary depending on which aggregator you work with and are awarded based on how much energy you reduce. The more events you participate in, the more rewards you’ll earn!
