Participating in your Xcel Energy’s AC Rewards program
On really hot weekdays between 2 and 7 pm from June to September, Xcel Energy may call for a temperature adjustment.
During these events, your ecobee thermostat will be adjusted by a few degrees for up to four hours. With eco+ enabled, the temperature adjustment will be tailored to your savings preferences.
All adjustments are voluntary and you always have control of your thermostat. You can end an adjustment by changing the temperature on your thermostat, through the mobile app, or through the web portal.
