Get paid $50.
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.
Georgia Power’s Thermostat Energy Management Program, TEMP✓™, will give you a $50 Prepaid Mastercard® for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards.
You must be a Georgia Power electric customer with an electric heat pump connected to your Nest to participate.
The program enrollment is currently closed. When the program enrollment is re-opened, you will receive an email noting the program is open for new enrollments.

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.
