How it works
Adjust your thermostat temperature and see an estimated dollar and kWh amount you can save this month.
Explore the impact of your contribution and donate to the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program.
We will convert your dollar donation to energy for people who suffer from energy poverty.
Fill out some information about your home and we will estimate your potential savings.
How are the energy savings calculated through Gridmates, and are they accurate?
The Gridmates energy calculation tool estimates your potential energy savings for the next 30 days according to average electricity prices and your input parameters (zip code, energy source, size of your home, and current thermostat temperature). We use sophisticated algorithms that apply laws of thermodynamics to calculate projected heat losses of your home. Because this is an estimate, we cannot guarantee that your actual savings will be the same as the estimated savings. We also use tabulated values for energy consumption found at eia.gov.
Will you automatically manage my thermostat to achieve the energy savings?
No. In order to achieve the estimated energy savings, you will need to manually change your thermostat’s temperature.
