  • You'll be able to opt-out of the adjustment for the day if you cannot participate.
  • By registering your thermostat, you'll receive $50 cash back. Limit 2 thermostats.
  • Additionally, at the end of 2020, you'll receive  $20 cash back if your thermostat(s) stay connected to Wi-Fi and you  stay enrolled through October 31, 2020.
  • If you're already enrolled in a Time-of-Use Plus rate plan, please see below1

 

Third Party Thermostat Program

How it works:
