EnergyWise Home

Enroll your battery storage system in exchange for monthly bill credits.

Get rewarded for your battery storage system.

EnergyWise® Home is a simple way to help your community by letting Duke Energy Progress more effectively manage energy on the electric grid. By enrolling your qualifying battery storage system in this program, you agree to let us adjust your battery control operating settings and utilize electricity stored on your battery between 30-36 times per year.

You’ll still maintain stored energy for your use at home. Plus you will receive a monthly bill credit.

How it Works

A signal will be sent to enrolled batteries at a specific time to temporarily adjust the system’s operating settings (charge, discharge, hold state of charge, return to normal operations, change of mode and store energy) and provide stored electricity back to the grid. You in turn get monthly bill credits for participating.
