All PeakRewards Air Conditioning program participants will be cycled up to 50% from 2 pm – 6 pm on Wednesday, September 6 with air conditioners returning to normal operation within 1 hour of the event. If you would like to override cycling during the Energy Savings Day, please call the customer hotline at 888.309.PEAK (7325).If you are enrolled in the Connected Rewards program, you will have your thermostat raised up to 4 degrees between the hours of 2 pm – 6 pm.

BGE’s PeakRewardsSM and Connected RewardsSM programs are designed to manage customer use of electricity in response to periods of very high electricity demand and/or pricing. Reducing energy use at critical times benefits you, the community and the environment.

By effectively managing your electric demand, you are helping to avoid building new power plants to meet the growing demand and keeping the price of electricity lower than it otherwise would be.


PeakRewards members receive bill credits for allowing BGE to cycle their air conditioning on and off during periods of peak electric demand. Currently, PeakRewards is not accepting new enrollees

Connected Rewards

Connected Rewards participants receive an annual $50 prepaid card in addition to a one-time $50 sign-up bonus for allowing BGE to adjust their thermostat by 4 degrees during periods of peak electric demand.
