Program Overview

  • Prior to an event, we will email you to let you know an event is coming. Plus, the day of an event we will remind you that the event is about to occur. You will also be notified by thermostat manufacturer just prior to an event.
  • Your smart thermostat manufacturer they may lower your thermostat(s) temperature a few degrees to pre-cool your home to keep you comfortable during the event or you may pre-cool your home yourself. Check with your manufacturer (see chart below) to see if they will pre-cool your home.
  • During an event, your thermostat manufacturer will raise your thermostat(s) temperature a few degrees above your set temperature for 2-3 hours. Remember, you can always raise your thermostat(s) at any time during an event.
  • After an event, your thermostat(s) will return to your original setting or schedule.
