The PeakRewards Trade Ally program is an initiative which seeks to partner with Maryland-licensed HVAC contractors who service BGE customers. The program offers eligible HVAC contractors incentives for PeakRewards program leads, device removals and for reconnecting a switch. The program also provides training with an opportunity to become a subcontractor for switch installations.
How does it work?
Interested HVAC contractors are invited to attend periodic meetings, which will provide an overview of the PeakRewards program and Trade Ally opportunities. HVAC contractors will have an opportunity to become a part of the program, upon completion of the Trade Ally Participation Agreement.
Once the agreement is completed, HVAC contractors will receive a vendor participation code and confirmation email. HVAC contractors are encouraged to call the PeakRewards Trade Ally hotline: 410-682-8268 or email: PeakRewardsHVAC@honeywell.com with any questions about the program.
