BGE Peak Rewards
What is Peak Rewards?
Peak Rewards is a BGE program designed to reduce the overall need for electricity on days when energy use is predicted to be high. There are two programs:
Summer - Air Conditioning Program
Winter - Electric Water Heater Program
When BGE predicts that electricity use will be high, your air conditioning or water heater will run less than usual. In return, BGE will pay you in bill credits.
Why enroll in Peak Rewards programs?
These programs help you use less energy. When you sign up for the air conditioning program, you get a programmable thermostat installed for free. On top of that, BGE pays you with bill credits for being part of the program:
Air Conditioning Program: $100 bill credit the first year, $50 credit for every year after that
Water Heater Program: $50 credit the first year, $25 credit for every year after that
