The Virtual Power Plant created by your appliances is used to offset the use of dirty polluting power plants that are otherwise used during times of peak demand.
Imagine getting everyone in your entire city, or even your neighbourhood, to reduce energy use at the same time. You can't? equiwatt does this with ease.
Earning rewards for saving energy has never been this easy. And the best part is that you're helping the planet while earning money!
Watch your energy use go down, and your rewards go up.
Get a peak event (equivent) notification when the power grid is experiencing peak demand or producing lots of CO2.
Use any energy consuming appliance in your home with equiwatt by simply turning them off when you receive a peak event notification (equivent).
Earn points for every equivent you participate in according to the energy you saved.
You can redeem them for eGift vouchers from well-known retailers such as John Lewis and Amazon, smart tech or green projects in our gift store.
You don't need to change energy suppliers or have a special tariff to be a part of the equiwatt community! equiwatt is a free app that can be used by any household in the UK.
equivents are peak time energy events during which equiwatt alerts you to shift your home's energy consumption. If you have connected smart enabled appliances or EVs these will be remotely managed for you. Once the event ends you will earn rewards for avoiding the use of expensive, polluting energy.

If you own a smart meter, we are able to reward you for taking part in events. Please connect it to equiwatt by following the instructions in the app and get rewarded for saving energy at peak times.
