How Our Power Peak Rewards Program Works

Smart thermostats help your home’s heating and cooling be more energy efficient year round. But when everyone is using electricity all at once, like during hot summer afternoons, we call on our Power Peak Rewards members to significantly reduce the total electrical load on our system during the cooling season while keeping you comfortable.

Program Details

We potentially adjust your home’s temperature a few degrees. This only occurs a maximum of 20 times between May 1 and October 31, no more than once per day, between 12pm to 10pm, for no more than 4 hours at a time, and with no more than 4 events per week.

You must be a PVREA member with central air conditioning or a heat pump and working WiFi to participate.

Your Rewards

Earn one $50 bill credit for signing up. Receive an annual $30 Participation Reward after the cooling season, typically in November.

Rewards are paid per member, not per thermostat.

  • Why does PVREA manage my home’s cooling?

    By lowering your energy usage we in turn lower our peak demand across the system which can result in savings from our power supplier. As a not-for-profit, we’re doing everything we can to keep our rates affordable.

  • When would PVREA control my cooling?

    This would only occur a maximum of 20 times between May 1 and October 31, no more than once per day, between 12pm to 10pm, for no more than 4 hours at a time, and with no more than 4 events per week.

  • What benefits do I get?

    You earn a $50 bill credit for signing up. You also receive an annual $30 Participation Reward on your account after the cooling season, typically in November. Rewards are paid per member, not per thermostat.

  • Where can I learn more about peak demand?

    We’re here to help you understand peak demand, provide educational resources, and help improve your energy efficiency. Find helpful articles and blogs in our News section.
