Demand Response for Home Battery Storage
Earn rewards and lower carbon emissions by enrolling your home battery storage system in Eversource's ConnectedSolutions.
Home batteries can help you store clean energy generated by a home solar system, or simply provide backup energy in case you need it.
By enrolling in the ConnectedSolutions Demand Response program, you will be rewarded for allowing Eversource to use the energy stored in your battery at times of high demand.
Incentives for home batteries are based on the average kilowatt (kW) used per event, averaged over the season. All events will occur between 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm. You will be notified before any event. If there is an extreme weather event in the forecast, we will not draw energy from your battery.

How much you earn is based on the average kW Eversource uses per event. A typical home battery could contribute an average of 5 kW per event. This would earn $1,125 for the summer season.
Different batteries can contribute different amounts during events. Please contact your battery vendor or installer for more information about your battery's expected contribution.
