What are Energy-Saving Missions

To contribute to a greener future, selected smart meter customers will be invited to participate in designated Energy-Saving Missions.

Calculating energy savings and rewards 

We calculate the units of electricity saved through the formula below: 

  • Electricity saved (kWh) = Baseline energy usage – energy usage during specified hours on the event day
  • Energy-Saving Reward = Each unit of electricity saved (kWh) x 200 Eco Points

To calculate your baseline usage, we will look at your energy use before the ESM event. Based on your energy use 10 working days before the ESM event, we will identify 3 days with the highest energy use.

Note:

The 10 working days cover Mondays to Saturdays, except public holidays and past event days.

Graph illustrating how we derive the baseline usage

We use the 3 days with the highest energy use to calculate an average and set your baseline usage. Depending on the ESM event period (e.g. 6pm to 10pm), we will reference your energy use during the same period.

Energy-saving rewards are calculated on an event basis. We will calculate your reward according to the formula below:

Energy-saving Reward = Each unit of electricity saved (kWh) x 200 Eco Points
