How It Helps

  • Receive a Business Degrees of Difference bill credit of $0.60 per kWh for using less electricity than normal during specified reduction periods.*
  • Get the satisfaction of knowing you’ve done your part to help the community by reducing demand on the electric grid.
  • Contribute to a better environment through collective usage reduction.

How It Works

Reliant will email you the day prior to an anticipated period of high demand, requesting you reduce your electricity usage for a specified time period. During the hours of requested reduction, adjust the thermostat as little as four degrees, dim lights and turn off office equipment that's not in use. Every action can make a difference. And for making these small changes, you’ll earn $0.60 per kWh conserved for using less electricity than normal during anticipated high-demand periods.*
