During hot summer and cold winter days, we all use more electricity. To help keep power reliable, affordable and sustainable, PGE’s Energy Partner Smart Thermostat program can install free smart thermostats to help your business use a little less energy when others are using more.
When energy demand is highest, such as a really hot day or cold morning, your thermostat may be automatically adjusted by just a few degrees for a few hours. You probably won’t even notice a difference, but it can make a big difference to your bottom line.
Not only will these powerful thermostats help you save energy and money year-round, as long as you don’t override more than 50 percent of the Energy Partner events, we also pay you $60 per thermostat twice a year, generating more money for your business.
By using less energy when others are using more, you:
Decrease the need for new power generation
Help keep energy costs lower for everyone
Help create a smarter, more resilient grid
Ensure a reliable and responsible energy future for Oregon
