GridRewards is an award-winning, free app that tells you when and how to reduce your energy usage. Earn cash payments and reduce your electricity bill all year round. An average household can earn more than $100/year — oh, and 98% of GridRewards participants got paid last year.

GridRewards is a powerful tool to create new routines and change our behavior around energy use. We encourage people to be more mindful of our power consumption, how energy is produced, and how our daily actions add up. Together with our neighbors, our small change adds up to real change, real carbon impact, and real money. And we shift the power from energy companies to our communities.


1. Unplug during events. 
GridRewards events are the most important times to save electricity. We’ll tell you when they’re happening — usually during hot summer afternoons, about 5-10 times per year.

2. Get paid. Get your friends paid.
We'll send you a check at the end of the year for the electricity you save during events. Get $10 extra for each friend you refer. Work together with your neighborhood to earn extra rewards and multiply your impact!

3. Reduce your carbon footprint.
Keep an eye on your electricity use and carbon footprint. Get personalized energy insights and learn about the best times to use energy.


Your utility company pays to reduce electricity at peak times to help maintain system reliability in your community.

What’s New

Version 2.0.14

Meet the all-new GridRewards!

It’s now even easier to know when to save electricity to earn cash and reduce your carbon footprint. We’ve redesigned the entire app to allow you to focus on what matters most. From joining events alongside your neighbors, to exploring your energy use and your bill, everything is simpler and more refined. (Oh, and we added dark mode too.)

Version 2.0.14 adds bug fixes and performance improvements.

Amazing energy efficiency and environmental equity app! 😍🌱

I’ve had GridRewards for two years now- my house earned $180 the first year, and I think we are on track for another great GridRewards season! The customer service team is really responsive, and the interface is so easy to understand. Overall- highly recommend :)

Beware - Rewards never paid (so far)

I participated in two GridRewards events in June. The app has been saying to check for the results in a “few days” ever since. They sent an email on July 2 saying the results would be posted “next week”. That never happened. I emailed customer service about it, and no answer. I’m sorry to say, but so far this has been handled horribly. At least, they should send more update emails to let people know what’s happening, but because they are not, I have to give this product a 1 star and stop recommending it to people.

Love the app!

It’s really cool to see where NY gets our energy from every day! I also love being able to track how I use my energy on a daily basis and learn where I can move activities to cleaner times of the day! It helps me feel like I’m making a difference!
