Farmers EC

  Get paid $100.

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 your Nest thermostat can do it automatically.

Farmers EC will give you a $100 bill credit for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards. And if you stay enrolled through the year you’ll receive an additional $50 for each consecutive year.

You need to be a Farmers EC member with central air conditioning and/or central electric furnaces to participate.

Farmers EC will give you a $100 bill credit for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards. Plus, you’ll receive an additional $50 after each consecutive year if you stay enrolled.

  • There can be multiple rush hour events each summer and winter. 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 will start in May and end in October in the summer and will start in November and end in April in the winter. They will occur on non-holiday weekdays and weekends between 12 p.m. - 9 p.m. in summer and 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. in winter.
  • There can be multiple rush hour events per day.
  • In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, Farmers EC 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.
