Inside Nest

Here’s what we’re working on and thinking about at Nest.

We can do more together.

How much have Nest thermostats saved? Enough to fly back and forth to the moon six times in a 747.

It makes us really happy when your Nest Learning Thermostat helps you save 20% on your heating and cooling bill. Every little bit counts. Of course, that fact is a lot more interesting when you add all the little bits together.

And that’s what we do with Nest Together.

Every month we estimate how many kilowatt hours of energy Nest thermostats have saved by learning our customers’ schedules. So far that’s enough energy to fly a 747 back and forth to the moon six times.

It’s an amazing achievement in such a short time. And we want to do more.

So if you buy a Nest thermostat through the Nest Together page, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree somewhere in the world—in the Amazon, or in Russia, or in a patch of land in New Jersey devastated by Superstorm Sandy.

We’ve already planted over 10,000 trees for Nesters who helped save energy—you can see which states planted the most here. But millions of trees are cut down every day. We have a long way to go.

So refer a friend through Nest Together. When they buy a Nest—with free shipping, of course—a new tree will grow somewhere in the world. Even better, they’ll start saving energy, and we’ll start adding those savings to our ever growing total.

This month it’s the moon. If we all work together, who knows how far we can fly.
