An Easy Way to Get Rewarded

An Easy Way to Get Rewarded

BGE’s Connected RewardsSM program helps decrease energy demand and emissions, keeps energy costs down for you and your neighbors, and rewards you each year you participate with a $50 prepaid card! During exceptionally hot or cold days, millions of cooling or heating appliances run at the same time. The demand for electricity adds stress to the grid, which may lead to higher energy costs, service interruptions and the release of pollutants that harm the environment. As a Connected Rewards participant, you’ll play an important role in protecting the environment and keeping energy costs down.

Together, we can save more than energy

When electricity is in peak demand, utility companies need extra help to prevent service interruptions and provide energy, but it may come at a cost. Connected Rewards was created to help keep energy costs down, avoid service interruptions and ensure customers still get the electricity they need.

How Connected Rewards Works

During times when the demand for electricity is at its highest, BGE may briefly adjust your thermostat by up to 4 degrees. To show our appreciation, we’ll send you a one-time $50 prepaid card for each smart thermostat you register and another $50 prepaid card per eligible thermostat at the end of each season you participate.

Learn what happens during an adjustment event and how BGE helps you stay comfortable.

Connected Rewards helps keep energy costs down, rewards you with an eGift card and much more.
