What is the purpose of a smart thermostat utility program?
Calling on Smart Thermostats will reduce demand during peak times and increase our service reliability. By lowering energy use throughout our system during times of peak demand, we can lower our power costs. Because electric cooperatives are not-for-profit, those savings are passed on to you, meaning the little changes are adding up to big savings. You will always have control of your thermostat and can change the settings at any time.
You've made the choice to use a smart thermostat in your home. Now take that a step further and make the choice that is good for your wallet, good for your cooperative, and good for the environment.
Small actions multiplied across thousands of homes help save on wholesale power costs. Saving on wholesale power costs benefits all members by keeping costs low for the entire electric cooperative.
