Nest thermostats learn what temperatures you like so they can keep you comfortable and help you save energy. Now they can do even more.
Green Mountain Energy will give you a one-time $35 bill credit and will donate to Sun Club®, on your behalf when you sign up for the Ready, Set, Relax program powered by Nest thermostats and Rush Hour Rewards. When you sign up your Nest thermostat in the Ready, Set, Relax program, it will automatically adjust during periods of extreme temperatures and high electricity demand to benefit the grid and your community. By enrolling, you’re showing your dedication to sustainability. You can relax knowing that you’ll always be in control of your thermostat. We’ll notify you before adjusting the temperature, and you always have the power to change it back or opt out whenever you like.
Ready to get started? It’s simple. Everything you need to sign up is listed below.

- In the summer, there will be a maximum of 20 rush hour events and each rush hour event will be no longer than 4 hours. Energy rush hours will start in May and end in October and will occur on non-holiday weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m
- In the winter, there will be a maximum of 20 rush hour events and each rush hour event will be no longer than 4 hours. Energy rush hours will start in November and end in April, and will occur on non-holiday weekdays between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
- In both summer and winter, you’ll only get one rush hour event a day, and there will not be more than 4 rush hour events in a week.
- In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, Green Mountain Energy may need to call a critical rush hour event. Critical rush hour events can occur at any time of day on weekdays.
Here's how it works:
Rush hour events happen when there’s unusually high demand on the grid. During these events, your Nest thermostat will adjust your home’s temperature by up to 4 degrees, helping you to use less energy. If you start to feel uncomfortable, you can stop participating at any time by changing the temperature.
