Building our electric future, together.
To fight climate change, our future will be electrified and powered by renewable energy sources. But the transition won’t happen overnight. Learn about our innovative demand response programs and how we can work together to fight climate change by creating a cleaner, carbon-neutral future.
What is a demand response program?
Demand response (DR) programs are innovative, consumer-led initiatives that use connected technology (like smart thermostats) to work with local electrical utility providers to help lessen the strain on our communities’ electrical grids.

While DR programs can vary from utility to utility, they usually look like this:

Small changes, big impact.
By working together to make small changes to our home heating and cooling use, we can ensure that peak demand is met without causing blackouts/brownouts, and that fewer costly, fossil fuel-using “peaker plants“ are needed.
Our 3 pillars of demand response
At Mysa, we’re helping to build the future energy grid, and we’re doing it by putting homeowners first.
As a Mysa user, you will never be automatically enrolled into a DR program without your consent, even if your utility provider has a program in place.
Our system is specifically built so that you will never be locked out of controlling your Mysas.
During any Mysa DR event, you can override changes at any time if you notice a difference in your comfort level.
Truth vs Myth
Test your DR knowledge with our quick, interactive quiz.
“The utilities can shut off my thermostats!”
“If I buy Mysa with a utility rebate, they will have control of my home heating!”
“Enrolling in a demand response program is just a way to get my information to sell it!”
Mysa’s demand response programs will always be homeowner-first. DR programs are built around small changes to manage the grid, never focus on a single home, and can be overridden by you at any time. There are no options for your utility to request a lockout, shutdown, or limit changes.
Purchasing Mysas for your home using a utility rebate does not mean that you are automatically enrolled in a Mysa DR program, even if your utility provider has a program in place.
By simply taking advantage of utility-sponsored rebates to purchase energy - saving technology like Mysa (or other home efficiency upgrades), you’re already helping create a more sustainable future - with or without a DR program.
Mysa does not and will not sell your personal data. Ever.
Together, we can shape the future of the grid.
Demand response is defined by true teamwork — a collaborative effort between future-focused customers like you, our Mysa team, your utility provider, and most of all, the rest of your community.
Together, we can build the sustainable, electric future we all deserve.
