How it Works

Couple at Home During the Day

On hot summer days, when the grid is stressed, it is important to conserve energy. Reducing energy at these times reduces energy costs and decreases pollution.

National Grid has made it easy for you to conserve energy at these peak times. After you enroll your qualified thermostat, National Grid will automatically send a signal to your thermostat to precool your home 2° F before the peak event and increase your thermostat setting 3° F during the peak event.

Here is some information on when peak events may occur:

  • June-September
  • Weekdays
  • Non-holidays
  • Between 2-5pm

There are typically 10 – 15 peak events every summer.

You can opt out of a peak event anytime by changing your thermostat setting.

You can opt out of most or even all peak events; however we may unenroll you from the program for the following year if the program is not a good fit for you.

To be eligible, you must be a National Grid Massachusetts residential or small business electric customer and have central air conditioning in your home or business. 

The thermostats supported by this program are:

  • Building36
  • ecobee
  • Emerson
  • Honeywell (including Lyric)
  • Lux
  • Nest
  • Radio Thermostat
  • vivint.SmartHome
