Receive incentives for decreasing energy use at the right times.

National Grid is committed to reducing peak electric demand on our system, and we need your help. Please join our ConnectedSolutions demand response program. By reducing electric use on request during periods of high energy demand (referred to as "peak events") we can reduce emissions, infrastructure costs, and utility prices. We can notify you to lower energy use at these critical times — earning you incentives.

We have 3 options for commercial and industrial customers, so you can choose the options that are right for you.
