Join Tandem and help enable a cleaner future while earning rewards.
PGE Tandem Home is designed to help you and PGE work together for a cleaner, more sustainable future. You get rewarded for making small changes that add up to a greater impact for us all.
Tandem works with your home’s technology to adjust settings during times of high energy demand, such as the hottest summer afternoons or coldest winter mornings, while giving you the ability to choose your own settings when you want. You earn rewards for shifting your energy use, and we’re able to provide your power more affordably and sustainably.
Here’s how it works
First, Tandem works with smart technology in your home to shave just a little off of those highest peaks in summer or winter energy demand. This might mean, for example, pre-heating or pre-cooling your home (so your thermostat can be lower during a peak time while still keeping you cool and comfortable).
If lots of homes temporarily shift a little away from those peak times, we don't have to build a power plant just for the handful of hottest or coldest days each year. That helps keep costs lower overall. It also gives us the flexibility to draw on cleaner, more cost effective energy to power your home.
When everyone shifts just a little, we make a big difference while still having comfort, reliability and affordability. After all, when it comes to staying connected, while using our resources wisely, we’re all in this together.
