Homeowners on National Grid, Eversource, Cape Light Compact, and Rhode Island Energy in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island can make hundreds of dollars a year with ConnectedSolutions.

Get paid to help the grid

When electricity demands are high, homeowners with IQ Batteries can choose to send their extra, stored power to the grid to help their neighbors and utilities. In return, they’ll earn cash for how much power they share with the grid. After enrolling in ConnectedSolutions, homeowners can expect these peak-demand events to happen up to 60 times a year, with participation 100% optional. Homeowners earn money based on how much energy they make available, so the more they participate, the more they’ll earn.
