How it Works.

When you enroll in the PeakRewards program, you agree to allow BGE to cycle your air conditioning on and off when electricity demand is high. You can sign up for the 50%, 75% or 100% cycling participation level. Your cycling level directly relates to the amount of bill credits you will receive each summer. Please review the cycling chart below for more information.

Cycling events typically occur during the summer months of June through September but can happen during other months throughout the year. If there is a significant increase in peak energy demand, your thermostat will receive a signal to cycle your air conditioning. Cycling helps maintain reliable service while keeping down the overall cost of electricity for everyone.

Not sure which cycling level is right for you? Take our brief survey to determine if the 50%, 75% or 100% cycling level best fits your lifestyle. To learn more about cycling events, visit PeakRewards Event Central.
