$5 Bill Credit is Yours with Bounce Back Energy Savings!

$5 Bill Credit is Yours with Bounce Back Energy Savings!Back in the day, Bounce Energy created a clever program called Peak Rewards. The purpose was simple: if you lowered your energy usage when Texas needed it most, typically in the summer,  we would reward you on your next bill. After 2 successful years, we’ve continued this service as Bounce Back Energy Savings and are offering you more reasons to sign up!

By enrolling in this program at no cost, you have the chance to earn a 5% discount on your Texas electricity bill when you reduce the amount of electricity used in your home during an “Emergency Event.” And to start your enrollment off on the right foot, you’ll get a $5 bill credit – but only if you sign up for Bounce Back Energy Savings through your MyAccount.

What’s an “Emergency Event?” This is when people start using too much electricity during extreme weather conditions: AC’s in the summer, heaters in the winter. No one wants to be uncomfortable at home when it’s extra-hot or super-cold outside, but using too much energy during these peak demand times lowers the amount of energy on the Texas electricity grid to unsafe levels.

What’s the key to earning this 5% discount? Follow the rules and save:

  1. Bounce Energy will call an “Emergency Event” with plenty of advance warning for our customers
  2. We will notify you of this event by e-mail or text message, complete with tips for reducing your electricity usage and staying comfortable in the weather
  3. When the “Emergency Event” happens, you’ll have to use less energy between 1pm-7pm during the summer and between 6am-9am and 6pm-8pm in the winter
  4. If we judge that you lowered your usage by at least 10% compared to your calculated baseline usage, your next bill will contain a 5% discount in the form of a bill credit.

How do you sign up for this free program? It’s easy! Simply log into your Bounce Energy MyAccount, click on the Bounce Back Energy Savings link in the left-hand sidebar menu, fill out the appropriate fields, and click the “Enroll” button.

If you’re already signed up with the Peak Rewards Program and want to adjust your notification settings, just log into your Bounce Energy MyAccount, click the Bounce Back Energy Savings link in the left-hand sidebar menu, and click the appropriate options for phone, e-mail, or both. This is important to do so that we know how to contact you appropriately if there ever is an “Emergency Event.”

Ultimately, this program encourages reduced energy usage across Texas during extreme weather situations so that the electricity grid can continue to provide power to everyone. By participating in Bounce Back Energy Savings, we’ll reward you with a $5 bill credit just for signing up, a 5% bill credit when you use less energy during an “Emergency Event,” and you could also receive a lower bill. Sounds like a “win-win” for you and your fellow Texans!
