Members that already have an ecobee or Emerson Sensi smart thermostat installed can share in the benefits. By agreeing to allow Berkeley Electric to adjust the thermostat settings about 4-8 times each month to reduce kilowatt-hour use during peak electricity demand periods these members will receive a $100 bill credit (one per household). Members will also receive additional $50 bill credit for each year of active participation (credit applied in April).

Take advantage of all the benefits offered by smart thermostats when you purchase an ecobee smart thermostat with voice control for just $150 + tax. Members can purchase an ecobee thermostat directly from the cooperative and either install it themselves or have it installed by an approved contractor. Once the ecobee thermostat is installed and connected to Wi-Fi, you will qualify for a $150 + tax bill credit (one per household). Members will also receive additional $50 bill credits for active participation (credit applied in April). Additional thermostats can be purchased for $150 + tax. Bill credits are one per home.
In exchange for the rebates, members will allow Berkeley Electric to adjust the thermostat settings around 4-8 times a month in order to reduce kilowatt-hour use during peak electricity demand periods. Typical time periods for the thermostat to be adjusted are 2:00-6:00 pm during the summer and 5:00-9:00 am during the winter. This helps the cooperative keep costs stable for all members while still allowing members to enjoy the comfort and energy efficiency savings of a smart thermostat. Minimum participation in the program is 3 years.
