COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 epidemic is impacting DC and the nation. It’s also changing the way we use electricity. Learn more on our COVID-19 page.

SAVE MORE THAN MONEY.TAKE THE REDUCE ENERGY USE DC PLEDGE.

The COVID-19 epidemic is having a significant effect on our lives in DC and across the nation. As we stay at home for our collective safety, we are using more electricity to power our work, school and daily activities. This increased energy usage may not only be impacting your bills, but also contributing to climate change. We can all take simple steps, today and every day, to do good for both our wallets and the environment.

  • Important to Note

    Three founding organizations the District Department of Energy and Environment, Pepco, and the DC Sustainable Energy Utility are working with numerous partner organizations and advisory organizations to execute Reduce Energy Use DC. Pepco will utilize the provided name, address, phone number, and email address to confirm you are a DC resident. Winners of the random drawings will have a $300 credit applied to their Pepco bill. If not a Pepco customer, winners can give the “Gift of Energy” and assign the $300 credit to a relative or friend or donate the $300 to a nonprofit of their choice. Your completion of the pledge will constitute your consent to receive Weekly Usage Reports beginning in July, if you’re a Pepco customer, and other Reduce Energy Use DC related emails.
