National Grid's electricity business customers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island can now earn up to $3,500 and become more energy efficient by participating in an innovative pilot the company launched in late January. The two-year program could save enough energy to power more than 20,000 homes -- roughly the size of the town of Medford, Mass. or East Providence, RI .

We are pleased to offer this innovative program that will give customers the technology and information they need to make more informed choices about energy-efficiency," said
Carlos Nouel, vice president of New Energy Solutions for National Grid. "National Grid hopes to demonstrate that this program and others like it are cost-effective game changers that will revolutionize how customers and business use and budget for their energy."

The pilot, more commonly known as a demand response program, offers financial incentives to qualified participating businesses for reducing electricity consumption during times when demand for electricity is at its highest. National Grid has teamed up with CPower, Enernoc and IPKeys - to administer the program.

These companies will ask participating customers to reduce electric use for at least 20 hours over the summer, typically in one-to-four hour increments. Participating businesses are eligible to receive up to $35 for every kilowatt-hour curtailed during these reduction periods.

Though this is the first commercial demand response pilot launched by National Grid, this is not the company's first demand response program that has been tested on the electricity distribution system. Most recently, the company was granted an interim extension by the Department of Public Utilities for its residential demand response pilot "Smart Energy Solutions." Under that program, nearly 15,000 customers in Worcester, MA were able to save $16 per month on their monthly bills by reducing electricity use during times of peak energy use.

Commercial and industrial customers who are interested in National Grid's new program can learn more by visiting National Grid's website (https://www.nationalgridus.com/MA-Business/Energy-Saving-Programs/ConnectedSolutions).
