Just signed up for this and curious if anyone has any experience? It is promoted by con-Ed so not sure if it’s available outside NYC. The basic premise is you download an app and when there high demand you get a notification to lower usage, you will not only save money by not using a lot of electricity but they will also send you a check after the summer based on how much usage you saved Con-Ed.

I didn't know it's available in NY, but I have heard of this idea before. It definitely looks legit. It seems you get paid every time there is an "event" just for signing up and you also get paid for the amount you reduced relative to your typical summer usage adjusted for temperature.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Anyone signed up ? We’ve had two events so far but it doesn’t show yet how much I earned, it keeps on saying check back in 24 hours

Too late to sign up for this year.

Has anyone gotten 'results' from last week's 'event'?

ETA: I should probably first ask, did anybody sign up for this already? And if so...

So far I haven’t received anything from the summer despite participating in many “events”  but app shows I’m due $15 soon, fingers crossed…

Worth signing up, even if you don’t take any action, if they interpret your usage patterns as reduction they pay you.

Where in the app does it show that? I'm expecting something significant, since having solar on my house would show me as using very little electricity during high demand times - but so far I don't see anything in the app.

I believe the requirement is to use less than you normally use during those hours. Because you probably have negative usage during those hours, I don't think it will help you.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Even now in the winter?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Update. App now says payment will be paid out at the end of each calendar years. PayPal is a payout option
