equivents are energy saving events during which equiwatt remotely manages your connected smart enabled appliances or EVs and rewards you for avoiding the use of expensive, polluting energy.
No. You can use equiwatt by responding to app notifications and reducing your energy use by manually turning off appliances during an equivent. 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.
