Energy Wise Rewards is a tool for Maryland customers to take more control over your energy usage, save money on your energy costs, and take a big step towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
Demand for electricity in Maryland is rapidly rising. During the “peak demand” times of summer, Energy Wise Rewards works to reduce electricity usage by “cycling” central air conditioners throughout the region, averting power outages, and reducing the need for costly, new electrical infrastructure.
There are no hidden costs or fees, and the program is completely voluntary. Because your participation is so important, we are offering this critical program at no charge, complete with valuable incentives. Joining is a choice that not only benefits you personally, but benefits your community and environment as well.
Enroll now by choosing your participation level and energy-saving device. You’ll receive a one-time installation credit, Monthly Reward Bill Credit, and your choice of Energy-Saving Devices at no charge!
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
Energy Wise Rewards works by cycling your central air conditioner or heat pump over short intervals (conservation periods) on selected summer days (called Peak Savings Days).
When Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods occur, cool air continues to be circulated throughout your home by the air conditioner fan. The cycling option you choose determines how long your air conditioner compressor will rest during each Energy Wise Rewards conservation period.
Energy Wise Rewards is only activated during times of high electricity demand. Energy Wise Rewards conservation periods typically occur on Peak Savings Days, June through October. Total conservation periods over the season usually amount to less than 1% of the year!
