How It Works

Just like roads at rush hour, the electric grid experiences moments of high traffic, or “demand.” ​

By participating in Connect to Save, you can earn up to $100 per year2 by allowing Jones-Onslow EMC to occasionally make minimal adjustments to your thermostat setting when grid traffic is high. These small actions multiplied across thousands of homes create more reliable power for the entire cooperative membership.​

​After your new thermostat is installed, Connect to Save will coordinate with Jones-Onslow EMC to occasionally make small changes to your home’s temperature during periods of high electricity demand. These adjustments are limited to 3 degrees3, typically last 3 hours or less, and you can opt out when needed.​
