Energy Wise Rewards is a voluntary program to help customers save money and energy automatically. The program works by initiating conservation periods for participating central air conditioners or heat pumps on Peak Savings Days, select summer days when energy demand is high. There are typically five Peak Savings Days between June and October each year. By enrolling your smart thermostat(s) in Energy Wise Rewards, you’ll receive $40 in bill credits, per device, each year you participate.
On really hot days between 7 AM-10 PM during Summer (June-October), Pepco may call for a temperature adjustment.
During these events, your ecobee thermostat will be adjusted by a few degrees for up to four hours. With eco+ enabled, the temperature adjustment will be tailored to your savings preferences. Event hours may very.
All adjustments are voluntary and you always have control of your thermostat. You can end an adjustment by changing the temperature on your thermostat, through the mobile app, or through the web portal.
