We develop a parallel rejection algorithm to tackle the problem of low acceptance in Monte Carlo methods, and apply it to the simulation of the hopping conduction in Coulomb glasses using Graphics Processing Units, for which we also parallelize the update of local energies. In two dimensions, our parallel code achieves speedups of up to two orders of magnitude in computing time over an equivalent serial code. We find numerical evidence of a scaling relation for the relaxation of the conductivity at different temperatures.
