During high energy usage times in your neighbourhood, your energy provider would often prefer to pay you to use less energy so that it makes it easier for them to keep the grid stable. But up until now, there hasn’t been an easy or automated way for them to pay households for changing their usage times.
At RedGrid we want to make this easy for both the customer and the energy provider. In this trial, we will be simulating moments where the energy grid would prefer you to turn things off. We will then reward you for participating. What’s exciting is that the best times for you to use your energy is during periods when more renewable energy is flowing into the grid. So you can be rewarded and save the planet at the same time. Our devices are automated, so you’ll be able to earn rewards without needing to lift a finger.
As a participant, you will always be kept in the driver’s seat, with an easy to use ‘snooze’ button to cancel this during times that you would prefer to use your appliances.
