省电奖励 Program

Help ease the strain on the electrical grid when energy is most in demand, 防止停电, benefit the environment — and get a bill credit too.

省电奖励

The 省电奖励 program is a voluntary, penalty-free program that pays participants for reducing their energy use during times of high demand or other emergencies. Participants who volunteer can help strengthen the grid, benefit the environment and earn a reward. Together, we can make a difference.

它是如何工作的

As the temperatures rise, increased demand for cooling can put a strain on the electrical grid. 当这种情况发生时, the state’s grid operator may call a Flex警报 or other grid warning requesting voluntary conservation. When you’re enrolled in 省电奖励, you can be rewarded for successfully conserving energy below your typical use during a 省电奖励 event.

If you’re an eligible residential customer looking to reduce your bill or energy use when the grid is especially stressed — 省电奖励 might be right for you.

  • 程序的季节: The program runs from May 1 through October 31.
  • 程序激活: A 省电奖励 event can occur Monday through Sunday, between the hours of 4 - 9 p.m. A 省电奖励 event will be called when the state’s power grid operator calls a Flex警报 or other grid emergency to maintain grid reliability.
  • 项目奖励: Eligible customers who reduce their energy use below their typical use during a 省电奖励 event, can receive a bill credit of $1.00 per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

It’s entirely voluntary to reduce your use during an event and there is no penalty if you choose not to participate.

省电奖励 customers are eligible to receive a bill credit if your household can reduce your energy use below your Typical Use when 省电奖励 is activated. 

How to Calculate Weekday Typical Use:

If a 省电奖励 event takes place on a weekday, 星期一至星期五, you can calculate your Typical Use by following the steps below.

  1. Review your energy use the five weekdays prior to the event, and identify the three weekdays in which your household used the most energy between 4 - 9 p.m.
  2. Add the total amount of energy use of the three days (between 4 - 9p.m.).
  3. Calculate the Typical Use by dividing the total amount of energy use of the three days and divide by 3. 这是典型的用法.

How to Calculate Weekend Typical Use:

If a 省电奖励 event takes place on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday) or a holiday (Memorial Day, 七月四日, 劳动节), you can calculate the Typical Use by following the steps below:

  1. Review your energy use on the three weekend/holiday days prior to the event.
  2. Identify the one weekday/holiday that used the most energy between 4- 9 p.m.
  3. Your home’s Typical Use is the weekend day/holiday with the highest energy use identified.

Please note: Days in which a 省电奖励 event occurred are not used in the Typical Use calculation.

If you successfully conserved energy below your typical use on a 省电奖励 day, a bill credit will be included on your energy bill that includes the energy use on the date of the 省电奖励 event day. This will usually occur within 31 days of the 省电奖励 event day.
