Help make California’s energy grid stronger, safer and more reliable for all Californians this summer – and get a reward for it too! The Power Saver Rewards program pays you for lowering your electricity use when energy is in high demand. When the temperatures rise, it pays to be flexible.
Here is how it works: On hot summer days, as more people use energy to stay cool, the electrical grid can become strained due to high demand. When this occurs, the statewide grid operator may call a Flex Alert or other grid emergency. As a result, the Power Saver Rewards program may be activated to help reduce energy use and strain on the grid.
If you are eligible and reduce your energy use during a Power Saver event between the on-peak hours of 4 p.m. – 9 p.m., you could receive a bill credit of $2.00/kWh. And the best part? The more energy you conserve, the more you can save! There are no penalties if you can’t conserve energy during an event, and you can opt-out of the program at any time.
If saving on your monthly energy bill, helping improve grid reliability and contributing to a cleaner environment sound good to you, the Power Saver Rewards program may be the right fit for your home. To learn more about this program, click here or call 1- 866- 291-9516.
