Small changes make a big impact

Little things in life can have a lot of impact, not only for ourselves but for our families, our community, even the world we live in. The same is true with energy. Slight shifts in when and how you use energy make a big difference. Especially when those shifts happen during high demand times like mornings and evenings.

A small change to when you run the heat, dishwasher or even take a shower can have a big impact. And PGE is here to help you with products and programs like Peak Time Rebates and our Smart Thermostat program — financially rewarding you for shifting electricity use when demand is highest.

When everyone shifts just a little, it helps keep energy prices low and reliability high. It also gives us the flexibility to draw on cleaner, more cost-effective renewable energy to power your home. But that’s a whole separate story.
