Smart Thermostats

$50 cash incentive

Installing a smart thermostat can help you reduce energy costs and keep your dwelling comfortable year-round. Smart thermostats use sensors to tell when you’re away, and can be programmed to use your daily schedule and local weather information to make energy-saving temperature changes automatically.

If you own an individual condominium unit, townhome, duplex, triplex or fourplex in Washington, view available cash incentives for smart thermostats.
