Installing a smart thermostat is a simple first step that saves energy and helps your home stay comfortable while contributing to a clean energy future.

And when you enroll in our Smart Thermostat program the savings continue. You’ll earn $25 just for signing up and then earn another $25 for each winter and summer you participate.

It’s easy – your thermostat does all the work and you get all the rewards. Just click on your thermostat from the list below and follow the simple steps to enroll.

How the program works

How the program works

When energy use is high, like on a really hot day or cold morning, your smart or Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat will adjust by 1 to 3 degrees.

  • Most thermostats will automatically pre-heat or pre-cool your home before those peak times, so you may not even notice a difference.

  • By having your thermostat automatically shift some of your energy use away from peak times, you’re helping keep prices low for everyone and enabling the use of more renewable energy.

  • If you’re part of our ongoing rewards program you earn $25 when you participate in at least 50% of events during a summer or winter season.

  • If you’re in our up-front rewards program, you’ll need to participate in at least 50% of the events to stay enrolled in the program.

Not at all! Just let your thermostat do its thing and make sure no one in your house overrides the settings. Once the event is over the thermostat will return to its regular settings.

  • Summer season runs June 1 through September 30. Events occur between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays.

  • Winter season runs December 1 through February 28. Events occur between 6 a.m and 10 a.m. or 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays.

  • There are typically 5 to 6 events each summer and winter with the ability to call a maximum of 15 events; events last between 1 and 4 hours.

You may see notifications on your thermostat and/or smartphone before and during an event. Each thermostat manufacturer has its own settings, here are some examples.
