I recently signed up for the Energy Wise Rewards Program offered to Pepco customers in the state of Maryland. In exchange for a yearly discount on my bill I’ve granted the electric company the ability to alter my thermostat settings during high periods of electric consumption. Despite the massive heat wave plaguing the east coast Pepco has not had the need to change my thermostat settings yet.
Have any of you signed up for similar programs in your area? If so what has your experience been so far?
