United Energy has invited it’s customers (in selected areas) to participate in a voluntary trial – The Summer Saver Trial is aimed at helping residents in the trial area to reduce demand on their local electricity network. Participants who take part can be rewarded with up to $100 per summer. During the trial, United Energy will ask participants to reduce their power usage for a period of up to three hours on an event. ‘Event days’ will be weekdays over the summer period (public holidays excluded). Participants will be given at least two days notification of an upcoming event day.
Customers will be rewarded with $25 for each ‘event day’ (totalling to $100 over a single summer) where they reduce their energy consumption in comparison to a similar summer day when they were not participating in the trial. Participants in the trial are able to opt out at any point in time.
