BGE wants to reward you for conserving energy. By enrolling an ecobee smart thermostat controlling a central air conditioning system, you can earn up to $100 through their Connected Rewards℠ program. BGE is here to help and will continue to provide customers with energy and money-saving programs.
With eco+, applications to the BGE’s Connected Rewards program are submitted through your ecobee mobile app on Android or iOS.
Open your ecobee mobile app and set up eco+ for your home.
Enter your utility information while enabling eco+ and select Enroll Now to apply to the Connected Rewards program.
You will receive a $50 e-gift card 4 to 6 weeks after your application has been approved.
Participating in BGE’s Connected Rewards program
On really hot days between 1 pm and 7 pm from May through October, BGE may call for a temperature adjustment.
During these events, your ecobee thermostat will be adjusted by a few degrees for up to six hours. With eco+ enabled, the temperature adjustment will be tailored to your savings preferences.
All adjustments are voluntary and you always have control of your thermostat. You can end an adjustment by changing the temperature on your thermostat, through the mobile app, or through the web portal.
EmPOWER Maryland programs are funded by a charge on your energy bill. EmPOWER programs can help you reduce your energy consumption and save you money. To learn more about EmPOWER and how you can participate, go to BGESmartEnergy.com.
