Saving the planet (and some money) has never been so easy.

If your home has central air conditioning, an electric forced-air furnace or ducted heat pump, your smart thermostat can help save on your bill when you enroll in PGE’s Smart Thermostat program. Don’t have a smart thermostat yet? They cost less than you think PGE Marketplace, and you can install them even if you’re renting (just check with your landlord first).

When you enroll in the program, your thermostat will automatically shift some of your energy use away from peak times. This helps use more sustainable energy resources, lower costs and continue to provide you with reliable energy. It's that simple!

Easy to participate

It’s as easy as doing nothing. Once enrolled, your thermostat will automatically adjust a few degrees when energy demand is high – this is called a Peak Time Event. You’ll be notified before an event by email, on your thermostat or your smartphone app, and if you don’t like the temperature it sets, you can always override the change.

What else should I know?

Peak Time Events

When energy use is high, your smart or Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat will adjust by 1 to 3 degrees. Your thermostat will automatically pre-heat or pre-cool your home before those peak times, to keep you comfortable during the event.

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

As part of the Smart Thermostat community, you’re always in control of your comfort and your health and safety should always come first.
