If you are a NYSEG or RG&E electric customer, you can earn an $85 Amazon e-gift card by enrolling your ecobee smart thermostat that controls your central air conditioning system into the “Smart Savings Rewards” program. Plus, you’ll receive $5 in bill credits per account for every event you participate in.
The Smart Savings Rewards Program is going through some changes and enrollment is closed for right now. The program will reopen on February 21st.
How it works: “Smart Savings Rewards”
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 4 degrees above your current temperature. These will only occur on non-holiday weekdays between 1PM and 7PM EST.
You will always have control and can easily change the temperature to your liking from your thermostat, smartphone, tablet, or computer. For each energy day that you participate in from start to finish, you’ll earn $5 in bill credits per account.
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 the "Smart Savings Rewards". Signing up takes only a few minutes.
After being approved you will receive an $85 Amazon e-gift card per device enrolled in the program. As energy events happen, you’ll receive $5 in bill credits per account for every event you participate in. This will be applied to your next bill.
