National Grid Announces Home Batteries Are Now Eligible for ConnectedSolutions Program across Massachusetts and Rhode Island

National Grid is announcing a significant expansion of its ConnectedSolutions program, which rewards customers for helping the company better manage the electric grid.

The program expansion makes more thermostats eligible for the program, and also adds eligibility for customers with rooftop solar and storage to the program for the first time. ConnectedSolutions customers can now enroll using home batteries from Sunrun, as well as thermostats from Nest, Honeywell, ecobee, Alarm.com, Building 36, Emerson, Lux, Radio Thermostat, and Vivint.

Customers with eligible devices can enroll their connected thermostat and/or home battery in the program and receive an incentive.

ConnectedSolutions has been a great opportunity for National Grid’s customers to save money and be rewarded for using connected devices that help us manage peak electric demand during hot summer days,” said Carlos Nouel, vice president of New Energy Solutions at National Grid. “We are very excited to expand ConnectedSolutions to include home batteries from Sunrun, plus more connected thermostat brands.”

National Grid is working with EnergyHub, a Brooklyn-based software platform and program services provider, to manage the ConnectedSolutions program. EnergyHub provides National Grid with demand response management software to monitor and control all residential devices in the program, as well as program operations management services.
