If installing a smart thermostat isn’t your thing, you can have one installed by a professional in your home for free or at a deep discount (depending on your heating and cooling system). You’ll be enrolled in PGE’s Smart Thermostat program without seasonal rewards but enjoy all the benefits of a smart thermostat right from the start.
When you're enrolled in the program, your thermostat will automatically shift some of your energy use away from peak times. This helps us use more sustainable energy resources, lower costs and continue to provide you with reliable energy.
If you have either of these systems, you are eligible for a free or reduced-cost installation. If you have gas or oil heat and no central air, take a look at our high-efficiency heat pump options instead.

We’ll come to your home to install your smart thermostat. During our installation, your thermostat will automatically be enrolled in PGE’s Smart Thermostat program. It’s that easy.
When energy use is high, 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.
