If you are a Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) customer, you can earn a $25 Visa gift card by enrolling your ecobee smart thermostat that controls your central air conditioning system in MGE Connect™. Plus, you will receive a $25 gift card at the end of the summer season for participating.
The MGE Connect™ program is closed for enrollment. Thank you for your interest in the program.
How does MGE Connect™ work?
Your smart thermostat keeps you comfortable when you’re home and saves energy when you’re away.
On really hot days when demand for electricity is the highest, your ecobee thermostat will be automatically adjusted by no more than four degrees above your current temperature. These adjustments will occur between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. only on non-holiday weekdays.
You will always have control and can easily change the temperature to your liking from your thermostat, smartphone, tablet, or computer. Plus, you will receive $25 at the end of the summer season for participating.
How it works in 3 easy steps:
Purchase, install, and register your ecobee thermostat. Note, if you already own an ecobee thermostat, you can move to step 2.
Apply to MGE Connect™. Signing up takes only a few minutes.
After being approved, you will receive a $25 gift card for being enrolled in the program. Plus, you will receive a $25 gift card at the end of the summer season for participating (customers with multiple thermostats controlling a single air conditioning unit are only eligible for one participation incentive).
