Nest thermostats learn what temperatures you like so they can keep you comfortable and help you save energy. With Rush Hour Rewards, you can get rewarded for using less energy when everyone else is using more. And, by enrolling, your Nest thermostat can do it for you automatically, but you will always remain in control.

Green Mountain Energy will give you a one-time $20 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.

Ready to get started? It’s simple. Everything you need to sign up is listed below.

You need to be a Green Mountain Energy customer with central air conditioning to participate. Not a Green Mountain Energy customer? Visit Green Mountain Energy to sign up for this and other great Google Nest offers.

Program Details

Green Mountain Energy will give you a one-time $20 bill credit and will make a donation to Sun Club® on your behalf for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards.

  • There can be multiple rush hour events throughout the year. Rush hour events can consist of a pre-cooling period in the summer or pre-heating period in the winter to make your home more comfortable and a period of time when your energy usage is reduced.
  • Energy rush hours can occur at any time of year between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
  • There can be multiple rush hour events per day.
  • 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.

Your program details may differ based on your utility. Additional details may be found on your utility’s website.

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 F, helping you to use less energy on heating or cooling during that time. If you start to feel uncomfortable, you can stop participating at any time by changing the temperature.
