Together with BGE, you and more than 300,000 other PeakRewards customers are reducing the amount of electricity used during periods of “peak demand” to help avoid power interruptions, maintain reliable service and keep down the cost of electricity for everyone.
Did you know?
By choosing to participate in the PeakRewards program, you agree to help ease high electricity demand by allowing BGE to “cycle” your air conditioner or electric water heater during periods of peak demand. If there is a significant increase in peak energy demand, your PeakRewards device will receive a signal to cycle on and off to help all BGE customers avoid power interruptions. In exchange for your participation in the program, you receive seasonal BGE bill credits.
By choosing to participate in PeakRewards, you have taken a smart and easy step to:
- Ease the burden on our existing electricity delivery system and reduce the need for additional power plants
- Protect our environment by lowering power plant emissions to reduce our carbon footprint
- Energy-saving solutions brought to you by EmPOWER Maryland
The PeakRewards program is a part of the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program®, which helps conserve energy, save you money and protect the environment.
