​aps giving away 8,000 smart thermostats and 2,000 smart plugs
PHOENIX – APS customers have the opportunity to win a smart thermostat or smart plug by switching to one of the three new time-of-use service plans before Jan. 1, 2018. Customers who switch to Saver Choice, Saver Choice Plus or Saver Choice Max will be automatically entered for a chance to win one of 8,000 smart thermostats or one of 2,000 smart plugs.

APS’s new service plans offer customers greater control over their energy use and bills. Whether customers are looking for the ultimate in convenience or want to maximize energy savings, they can find a plan to meet their needs. Pairing the new service plans with devices such as smart thermostats and smart plugs can help customers save even more. 
 
Smart thermostats provide increased flexibility, allowing customers to control their thermostat anywhere, anytime. Studies suggest that smart thermostats can produce electricity savings ranging from 8 to 15 percent of a home’s cooling and heating costs. Similarly, smart plugs enable customers to control various small appliances and electronics remotely. They make it easy to turn devices on and off and monitor energy use from a smartphone or tablet. 
 
The APS Smart Device Sweepstakes ends Dec. 31, 2017 at 11:59:59 p.m., and is open only to APS residential customers as of Aug. 18, 2017. Customers who don’t switch to a new service plan (such as grandfathered solar customers) are still eligible to enter the sweepstakes. Visit aps.com/plans for Official Rules.
 
While the Smart Device Sweepstakes ends Dec. 31, customers have until early next year to choose a new service plan. Between February and April 2018, if a customer hasn’t selected a new service plan, they will automatically transition to the plan most similar to the one they have now.  For more information on all the new service plans, customers can visit aps.com/plans.
 
[Disclaimer: Customer bills will depend on individual consumption and/or management of electric usage during on-peak hours.]
