What is ConnectedSolutions Demand Response?
Connecting qualified thermostats to Eversource's program enables us to makes small adjustments to your energy use during times of peak demand, while rewarding you for helping reduce demand on the electric grid.
You can earn $25 for enrolling a qualified thermostat, and an additional $20 at the end of the summer.
Times of peak demand are when everyone is using electricity the most, which often requires additional power generation with more expensive and more polluting fuels.
You maintain control of your thermostat during peak demand events and can opt-out of adjustments at any time.
All events will last for three hours and occur between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on non-holiday weekdays between June 1 and September 30. Notification will be sent out prior to and after all events.
How to Enroll
If you already own an eligible thermostat you may receive a notification from your thermostat manufacturer asking you to enroll. You can also purchase an eligible thermostat and enroll yourself.
