Austin Energy wants to reward you for conserving energy by paying you $85 to enroll your ecobee thermostat into the Power Partner℠ Thermostat Program to help avoid power outages in your community.
How it works
Your smart thermostat keeps you comfortable when you’re home and saves energy when you’re away.
On really hot summer days, when demand for electricity is highest, Austin Energy will automatically adjust the setting by a few degrees Fahrenheit on your thermostat for 1-2 hours. Usually on weekdays between 4 and 6pm.
You will always have control and can easily change the temperature to your liking from your thermostat, smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Sign up for Austin Energy’s Power Partner℠ Thermostat program and get $85 for each ecobee thermostat you own. It’s that simple.
Click here to apply to the Power Partner℠ Thermostat Program. Signing up takes only a few minutes, but make sure to have your account number ready.
Applications will take four to six weeks to be processed. After being approved, you will receive a $85 check in the mail.
NOTE: Austin Energy offers an additional $25 rebate for simply purchasing and installing a new ecobee thermostat. To apply for this separate rebate, visit www.austinenergy.com/go/powerpartner and click the "Apply Online" button under the How to Apply tab. Your rebate will be processed within 4-6 weeks.
