How to sign up for a Nest energy saving program or stop participating in a program

If you’re a customer of one of Nest’s energy partners, you may be able to sign up for Seasonal Savings or Rush Hour Rewards. You may also be eligible for a Google Nest thermostat rebate or even installation at no cost.

Before deciding whether you’d like to participate in an energy program, you can learn more about each one at the following links:

Seasonal Savings >

Rush Hour Rewards >

Below, we’ll show you how to find out which programs you can take advantage of and start participating in the ones you’re eligible for.

How to get a rebate on the purchase of a Nest thermostat

Visit the following page and enter your ZIP code to check for rebates:

Nest Rebates and Rewards >

Even if your energy provider doesn’t offer a rebate on the purchase of a thermostat, you may be eligible for other energy programs. If so, the page will list the programs in your area.

And remember, you can always purchase a Nest thermostat at Nest’s online store and sign up for available energy saving programs using the Nest app.

How to sign up for a program

You’ll need two things to sign up for an energy program:

  • An account with an energy partner participating in one of our energy saving programs
  • free account with a Nest thermostat added

Note: If you have a Nest thermostat but you don’t have an account in the Nest app yet, see our instructions for adding your thermostat to the Nest app.

When you’re ready, you can check eligibility and sign up.

Your thermostat will check for you

When you first set up your Nest thermostat it will check to see if there are any energy saving programs available in your area. If there are, it will ask you if you want to sign up for one. If you do, the app will guide you. If not, you can always sign up later.

Sign up anytime with the Nest app

If you’ve already gone through setup, the app will check for programs in your area and send you a message. You can also manually check for local programs with the app and sign up. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Nest app on your phone or tablet, or use a web browser to visit home.nest.com. If you’re asked to sign in, enter the email address and password you use for your account.

  2. Tap Settings Nest settings icon on the app home screen.

  3. Tap Rebates and rewards.

  4. Take a look at the energy saving programs available in your area, and tap on your energy provider to learn more and sign up.

Note: If you don’t see any programs, it means there currently aren’t any available for your area. Keep in mind, there are other ways your Nest thermostat can help you use energy wisely. See our tips for improving energy savings with your Nest thermostat.

How to start or stop participating in a program you've signed up for

After you’re enrolled in an energy saving program, you’ll still have the option to stop participating if you want to.

Seasonal Savings

  1. Open the Nest app on your phone or tablet, or use a web browser to visit home.nest.com.
  2. Tap Settings Nest settings icon on the app home screen.
  3. Tap Rebates and rewards.

Note: If you want to completely un-enroll from Seasonal Savings, contact your energy provider.

Rush Hour Rewards

You can’t use the Nest app to start or stop participating in this program. That’s because your reward from your energy partner is based on your agreement to help out whenever there’s an energy rush hour.

If you’re currently enrolled in Rush Hour Rewards and you want to un-enroll, contact your energy provider.
