Sonoma Clean Power is launching GridSavvy Rewards for the 2023 season (May - October). GridSavvy Rewards is a new way for our customers to earn rewards for saving energy during hours of high electricity usage on the electric power grid.
You’ll receive $25 as a bonus when you enroll in GridSavvy Rewards. Then, earn additional rewards every time you reduce energy when a GridSavvy Rewards energy saving alert is sent. There are no penalties if you don't reduce your usage, only rewards when you do.
Receive text or email alerts when there is a need to save energy. There is no need for expensive equipment or for special technology. Simply reduce electricity use when SCP notifies you and you’ll earn rewards.
Residential customers with a SmartMeter™ are eligible to sign up if they are not already participating in a utility or third-party demand response program. If you are already enrolled in GridSavvy Rewards with an electric vehicle or smart thermostat, you can still participate!
You can choose to receive energy saving alerts via text, email, or voice call and can unenroll at any time. Click here for terms and conditions.
SCP will send an energy saving alert when the electrical grid is stressed because the demand for electricity is high.
You’ll receive an alert up to 24 hours in advance via text or email that there is an opportunity to save energy and earn rewards.
These can last from one to four hours, between 4 p.m. - 9 p.m., and may occur a few times per month.
Additional energy saving alerts may occur on back-to-back days and for longer periods of time if the California grid operator calls a Flex Alert.
You’ll earn $2 for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) you save during the hours requested in the energy saving alert. That's roughly equal to how much electricity it takes to run one dishwasher cycle.
You’ll help California prevent rotating power outages and reduce the need for fossil fuels.
