Here’s How It Works

Help Lower Energy  Demand

As the temperature increases in hot summer days, air conditioners cycle and create “an energy rush hour.” Distribution utilities such as MVEC need more generation to meet the higher energy demand, which in turn drives up power costs.

Tweaking The Temperature

Together, we can work to lower these costs. A Google Nest Thermostat can help you use less energy during the rush hour by cooling your home ahead of time and then tweaking the temperature up a few degrees when it’s needed.

You’re in Control

If you’re home, Nest won’t let the temperature change more than a few degrees. Plus, you always have the option to change the temperature as needed. You’ll stay comfortable. You’ll be in control.
