 Get rewarded.

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.

Your local utility will give you a financial incentive for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards. And if you stay enrolled through the summer, you may receive an additional participation incentive.

You need to be an active electric utility customer with central air conditioning to participate.

  • There can be multiple rush hour events per day.
  • In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, local utility may need to call a critical rush hour event. Critical rush hour events can occur at any time of day.

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.
