As part of our ongoing effort to offer first-in-class solutions to our members and customers, we have partnered with Nest, makers of the Nest thermostat, to bring a cutting-edge approach to load management and energy efficiency.

NEST AND RUSH HOUR REWARDS

Save on the purchase a Nest thermostat through rebates, and if you have central air and/or a heat pump, sign up for our Rush Hour Rewards load management program to receive two $25 account credits throughout the year. If you already own a Nest, then simply sign up for Rush Hour Rewards to start earning account credits.

Don’t have a heat pump or central air but want a Nest thermostat? You can still take advantage of available rebates.

Order your Nest here and receive an instant $50 rebate. You can choose between the Nest Learning Thermostat and the Nest Thermostat E, both with features to help you learn about your energy use and save energy as well.
