Help prevent service interruptions.

Voluntarily reducing your energy use removes stress from the grid, which keeps the electric supply running smoothly.

Keep energy costs down.

When energy demand is high, additional power plants are used to provide more electricity. These power plants raise the cost of electricity for everyone. By reducing energy demand, Connected Rewards reduces the need for extra power plants.

Protect the environment.

The same costly power plants relied on for increased energy also release more pollution, including greenhouse gases, into the atmosphere. Keeping energy demand low helps reduce airborne pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Receive a $50 reward.

Each year you participate in Connected Rewards, you’ll receive a $50 prepaid card.

Comfort and Control

When you sign up for Connected Rewards, BGE will make small adjustments of up to 4 degrees to enrolled thermostats during periods of peak energy demand. However, you’re always in control of your thermostat and your comfort.
