A great way to manage your business’ energy costs and earn rewards.
During hot summer and cold winter days, we all use more electricity. To help keep power reliable, affordable, and sustainable, your business can enroll in PGE’s Energy Partner Smart Thermostat program. We'll install your smart thermostat to help your business use less energy and earn ongoing rewards.
We get a special thrill out of helping our customers save energy and cut costs.
Lovejoy Bakers scored a tasty deal with the Energy Partner program. Once they got their smart thermostats installed, their energy bill dropped by almost 40%. That's a sweet savings of several hundred dollars per month!
How does it work?
When energy demand is highest, such as a really hot day or cold morning, PGE will announce a Peak Time Event. When the event starts, your thermostat will automatically adjust by just a few degrees. Your thermostat will go back to its original setting once the event is over. You probably won’t even notice a difference, but it can make a big difference to your bottom line. As long as you don't override more than 50 percent of a season's event hours, we'll pay you $60 per participating site. And just like that, you're generating even more money for your business.
Plus, these smart thermostats give you more control of your energy use, helping you save energy and money year-round.
In order to qualify for the Energy Partner Smart Thermostat program, you'll need a ducted electric heating or air conditioning system and have a permanently installed internet network.
