CCEC has expanded the benefits of its Connect to Save initiative by offering FREE ecobee3 lite smart thermostats to members who enroll in the program by Aug. 31.
Members will also receive FREE installation and an annual $50 incentive for complete participation in the Connect to Save program. In addition to a free smart thermostat, members can receive $50 for installing a smart water heater control on their electric water heater through the program.
After free, professional installation, the Connect to Save program will minimally adjust your thermostat during times of high energy demand. This small action multiplied across thousands of homes will create big savings on wholesale power costs, which benefits the entire cooperative membership.
Innovative programs like Connect to Save are part of the cooperative’s commitment to building a brighter future for the people and the local communities it serves. With a long-term goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and an interim target of a 50 percent reduction in carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 2030, the co-ops are leveraging new and existing technologies to shape the future of the electric grid and better serve their members.
