Smart Thermostat Program – Upfront Rewards

PGE no longer offers installation as part of the Smart Thermostat program

If you enrolled in the Smart Thermostat program by having PGE install a thermostat in your home between August 9, 2018 and May 31, 2022, you received the up-front reward of free installation and a free or discounted thermostat. See terms and conditions PGE.

As of June 1, 2022, PGE no longer offers professional smart thermostat installation or upfront rewards.

Although your participation in the Smart Thermostat program does not include seasonal rewards, you still enjoy all the benefits of a smart thermostat, and your participation helps use more sustainable energy resources, lower costs and contributes to a clean energy future.

And this summer, if you're enrolled in the Smart Thermostat program, you'll be entered to win one of five $100 gift cards from a local business at the end of the season (learn more about the summer sweepstakes PGE).

What 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.

Stay comfortable, stay safe

As part of the Smart Thermostat community, you’re always in control of your comfort and your health and safety come first. Here’s information about staying safe when the weather heats up PGE.
