Duke Small Business Demand Response

 

Get rewarded.

Nest thermostats learn what temperatures you like so they can keep you comfortable and help you save energy. With Duke Energy's Bring Your Own kW Program, powered by Rush Hour Rewards, you can get rewarded for using less energy when everyone else is using more. And, by enrolling, your Nest thermostat can do it for you automatically, but you will always remain in control.

Duke Energy will give you $30 per kW reduced during rush hour events through the winter season. 

You need to be a Duke Energy small or medium business customer with central air conditioning or a heat pump to participate. If the small or medium business space is leased, the occupant of the space is required to enroll into the program and accept the terms and conditions.

Program Details

Duke Energy will give you $30 per kW reduced during rush hour events through the winter season. 

  • There can be multiple rush hour events throughout the year. Rush hour events can consist of a pre-cooling period in the summer or pre-heating period in the winter to make your space more comfortable and a period of time when your energy usage is reduced.
  • Energy rush hours can occur at any time of year between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
  • There can be multiple rush hour events per day.
  • In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, Duke Energy may need to call a critical rush hour event. Critical rush hour events can occur at any time of day.

Your program details may differ based on your utility. Additional details may be found on your utility's website.

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 F, helping you to use less energy on heating or cooling during that time. If you start to feel uncomfortable, you can stop participating at any time by changing the temperature.
