Cool Rewards and Rush Hour Rewards

aps

Technology is cool. Especially when it's paired with a one-time $50 enrollment bill credit per thermostat and an annual $25 participation bill credit per thermostat just before the event season.

Here's how Cool Rewards works:

Overview


 
Participation in the APS Cool Rewards program will allow us to raise your qualifying internet-connected thermostat by a few degrees during Cool Rewards events, which can occur during on-peak hours on weekdays or weekends when energy usage is very high, between June 1 and September 30.

APS does not approve or endorse any one device or vendor over another and is not responsible for the vendors' services and products.

Events


 

There will never be more than 20 Cool Rewards events per summer and each will last up to two hours. Prior to an event, there may be a period of pre-cooling, which will allow us to lower your internet-connected thermostat by a few degrees to help maintain comfort during the actual Cool Rewards event. You can opt out of the Cool Rewards events at any time from your mobile device, web browser or thermostat.

Reward


 
For enrolling, you will receive a one-time $50 enrollment bill credit per thermostat after initial enrollment and acceptance into the program. You will also automatically receive a $25 participation bill credit per thermostat annually for being enrolled in the program as long as the program is still available.

Details


 
Participants will receive the enrollment bill credit when accepted into the program, within one to two billing cycles. Participants who enroll during the Cool Rewards event season (June 1 through September 30) will receive the first participation bill credit in the current season. Those who enroll after the event season (October 1 through May 30) will receive the first participation bill credit during the next event season in June. Thereafter, participants will receive the participation bill credits annually in June, as long as the program is available.

Here's how Rush Hour Rewards for Nest thermostats works:

Overview


 
Participation in the APS Rush Hour Rewards program will allow Nest to raise your thermostat temperature up by a few degrees during Rush Hour Rewards events, which may occur weekdays or weekends, during the event season, June 1 through September 30. There will never be more than 20 events per event season and each will last an average of 2 hours. Prior to an event, there may be a period of pre-cooling, which will allow Nest to lower your thermostat temperature by a few degrees to help maintain comfort during the event.

APS does not approve or endorse any one device or vendor over another and is not responsible for the vendors' services and products. 

Events


 

Nest will send you an alert prior to an event so you know when it will be happening and how long it will last. You’ll be able to opt out of any of the events from your smartphone, computer or thermostat if it’s not convent for you.
