Program Details

Eversource will give you a $25 gift card for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards. Plus, you’ll receive an additional $20 gift card at the end of every winter you stay enrolled.

  • There can be a maximum of 15 rush hour events each summer, and each event will be no longer than 4 hours.
  • Rush hours will occur on non-holiday weekday mornings between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and evenings between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
  • You’ll only get one rush hour event a day, and there will not be more than 5 rush hour events in a week.
  • In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, Eversource may need to call a critical rush hour event. Critical rush hour events can occur at any time of day year round.

Here's how it works:

Rush hour events happen when there’s unusually high demand on the grid. During these events, your Nest thermostat will adjust your home’s temperature by up to 4 degrees, helping you to use less energy. If you start to feel uncomfortable, you can stop participating at any time by changing the temperature.
