Rewarding News® About Your Energy Impact

When you flip a switch, you expect the lights to come on. But when the electric supply is strained to the max, it puts the power we all count on at risk. That’s why programs like PeakRewardsSMConnected RewardsSM and Energy Savings Days were created. By participating in these programs, you and thousands of other BGE customers help keep the electricity on during critical times — like very hot days when air conditioners are blasting across central Maryland.

Saving energy benefits everyone.

When you save energy, you save money. And you’re not the only one who benefits. Reducing electricity usage contributes to better outcomes like these for thousands of BGE customers:

Keeping electricity costs down.

By helping lower overall electricity usage during high demand periods, you help manage extreme spikes in energy prices. Your participation in the program provides a way to keep energy costs down for everyone.

Avoiding power interruptions.

Reducing the demand for electricity puts less stress on energy distribution systems, leading to fewer power outages.

Protecting the environment.

High demand for electricity can require additional power plants to come online. These additional power plants use fossil fuel and are more expensive to operate. The less they’re needed, the less pollution is created and the less energy costs spike when demand is high.

Keep saving year-round with BGE tools.

When our summer-season programs end, keep the momentum going with energy-saving tools like these.
