It's easy to become a participating community

Owners, landlords, and property managers may call 1-866-353-5798 to enroll their building(s) in Energy Wise Rewards. Each unit must have its central air conditioner or heat pump in good working order.

Once you enroll your community, we'll professionally install our web-programmable thermostats in your residents' units at no charge. This will provide more personal control of their energy usage all year long.

We'll also:

  • Collect and recycle all mercury thermostats
  • Manage all program inquiries and service
  • Issue welcome kits explaining the program to residents, with the option to participate or to choose a different participation level, and instructions on how residents can opt out
  • Provide residents with a comprehensive thermostat guide
  • Provide marketing materials to support the promotion of the program

Residents may enroll individually, but must receive permission from their building's owner, landlord, or property manager before an Energy Wise Rewards thermostat may be installed in their home.

Your community's participation is important

During the summer months, electricity demand soars. Through your participation, you and your residents:

  • Help balance regional electricity usage
  • Help keep energy prices lower over time
  • Reduce the need for costly, new electrical infrastructure
  • Reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming
