If you are a residential APS customer, you can earn a $25 bill credit by enrolling your ecobee smart thermostat that controls your central cooling system into the APS Cool Rewards program and also get an annual $25 participation bill credit per thermostat enrolled in the program. Plus, you can receive a $30 one-time rebate from the APS Smart Thermostat program for each thermostat you enroll.
On really hot days when demand for electricity is the highest, your ecobee thermostat will automatically raise by no more than 2 degrees above your current temperature. Cool Rewards events will only occur between 3PM and 8PM and there will never be more than 20 events per summer.
To help maintain comfort during a Cool Rewards event, there may be a period of precooling where your ecobee thermostat will be lowered by no more than 3 degrees.
You will always have control and can easily change the temperature to your liking from your thermostat, smartphone, tablet, or computer.
How it works in 3 easy steps:
Purchase, install, and register your ecobee thermostat. If you already own an ecobee thermostat, you can move to step 2.
Apply to the APS Cool Rewards program. Signing up takes only a few minutes.
Once approved for the APS Cool Rewards program, you will earn a $25 bill credit per thermostat controlling a central cooling system and get an annual $25 participation bill credit per thermostat. Plus, if eligible, you can receive a $30 one-time rebate from the APS Smart Thermostat program per thermostat.
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.
When you register a new, approved smart thermostat in the APS service area for the APS Smart Thermostat program, we will send you a check for $30 in the mail in 5-6 weeks.
