The Biggest Energy Saver Campaign, launched in 2011, was designed to reward consumers who make the most of their smart meter data to reduce their energy usage and potentially lower their electric bills.
The 2013 Biggest Energy Saver Campaign will feature two main components — the Reduce Your Use Contest and the Lighten Your Load Sweepstakes.
The Contest will encompass three monthly contest periods in June, July and August and will reward customers who reduce usage the most compared to the same period in 2012.
The Lighten Your Load Sweepstakes will reward those customers who reduce electricity usage during the afternoon on set days.
The Biggest Energy Saver promotion is sponsored by Grid21. The founding partners include Oncor, CenterPoint Energy, Landis+Gyr and Itron.
