How do points for National Grid DFS events work?

To earn points from National Grid DFS events, you will need to beat your energy forecast.

When National Grid DFS equivents happen, you will need to beat your household-wide energy use forecast to earn double or even triple points depending on the reduction! Your forecast will be clearly visible on the home screen of the app during an equivent.

This is measured via your smart meter. Find out how this works.

Tip: Check your In-home Display unit to see how much energy you are using at home to help you work out how much electricity you need to save to beat your forecast.
