Rush Hour Rewards

Austin Energy will give you a one-time payment of $85 per Nest Thermostat to use less energy.

Here’s how it works:

  • Austin Energy wants to lower demand during peak energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s cranking up the air conditioning.
  • Nest Thermostat can help you avoid using energy during those rush hours by automatically cooling your home ahead of time.
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let the temperature rise more than a few degrees. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
