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.

- There can be multiple rush hour events each summer.
- Energy rush hours can occur during any month of the year. They will occur on non-holiday weekdays and weekends between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.
- There can be multiple rush hour events each season, and each non-critical rush hour event will be no longer than 4 hours.
- In the unlikely situation of a critical need on the electric grid, SCE may need to call a critical rush hour event. Critical rush hour events can occur at any time of day and will be no longer than six hours.
- SCE has the right to remove you from the program if you opt out within the first hour of every rush hour event during a season or your device was offline or not in a cooling mode for more than 30 days
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.
