A smart thermostat is a programmable thermostat that connects to your home’s Wi-Fi and gives you the ability to adjust your thermostat setting to fit your schedule and save energy.
A smart thermostat is a programmable thermostat that connects to your home’s Wi-Fi and gives you the ability to adjust your thermostat setting to fit your schedule and save energy.
The ability to schedule your thermostat settings or to adjust them remotely can help avoid heating and cooling your home at unnecessary levels when no one is there.

About 5-6 times per month, the thermostat will be adjusted remotely based on system-wide peak periods. The events will be 4 hours total, which includes a one-hour pre-cool/pre-heat period and three hours of peak-saving adjustment. Most control times will follow this pattern:

You’ll be notified of control during peak times on the device’s display and via email with an option to override. You can override control up to 40-percent of the time. If you were to exceed 40-percent, the cooperative would have the option to recover all cost as a charge on your bill.
When the cooperative purchases power, energy at those peak hours is more expensive. The more we can cut down on how much energy is used during those periods, the lower our power bill will be. We will use that savings to hold down costs for our members.
