3 easy steps to being part of the Residential Power Partner Thermostat Program
As you may know, ecobee is an energy solutions company that creates Wi-Fi enabled thermostats to help energy-conscious people like you understand, manage and reduce their energy consumption. Not only are we passionate about our products and services, we're also pretty excited to be working with Austin Energy on their new Residential Power Partner Thermostat Program. If you have an ecobee Smart or Smart Si thermostat, you can be part of it, too! Here's how the program works:
- Austin Energy will access your air conditioning system remotely through your ecobee thermostat and adjust it so it's either 4°F higher than your normal setting, or shut the system off for 15 minutes every half hour. These "cycling off" events would only take place on a few select weekday afternoons during the summer between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. (chances are, you won't even notice when it happens.) There would be little impact to your daily routine and your system wouldn't be accessed on weekends or holidays.
- Within eight weeks of installing and registering your ecobee thermostat and enrolling in the Residential Power Partner Thermostat Program, you can look forward to an $85 check from Austin Energy – talk about easy money! Have more than one ecobee thermostat installed? You're in luck! Austin Energy will give you $85 for every ecobee thermostat installed in your home.
- If you ever decide that you want to opt out of a cycling event, you can do so by notifying us through your ecobee thermostat or through your ecobee Web Portal.
