Two ways to make a difference

Two ways to make a difference

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 eGift 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.
