More than 1 million BGE customers have helped save energy during critical times each summer when it’s needed most. Whether you participate in one of BGE’s summer energy savings programs or you reduce your energy use in other ways, every effort makes a difference and we appreciate you.
Programs like PeakRewards, Connected Rewards and Energy Savings Days help reduce overall electricity usage when homes and businesses turn up their A/C and the demand for electricity is at its highest. In turn, this helps avoid the cost of building new power plants to meet extra demand during peak times. It also helps us manage spikes in energy prices, which can help keep costs down for you.
Whether you receive bill credits for participating in the PeakRewards Air Conditioning Program or Energy Savings Days — or you earn money for participating in Connected Rewards — you get rewarded for saving energy. These incentives are our way of saying thanks!
PeakRewards and Connected Rewards are low-maintenance programs. Your thermostat (or A/C switch) does the work for you. Plus, on Energy Savings Days, just use less energy than usual and save!
When the demand for electricity is reduced, it puts less stress on energy distribution systems. That leads to fewer power outages when electricity is needed most.
During peak times when customers are using large amounts of electricity, additional power plants may need to come online. Those power plants use fossil fuel. The less they come on, the less pollution they put out.
