Rush Hour Rewards

Piedmont Electric will pay you to use less energy when everyone else is using more. And your Nest thermostat can do it automatically.

Here’s how it works:

  • Piedmont Electric wants to lower demand during energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s cranking up the air conditioning.
  • A Nest thermostat can help you use less energy by tweaking the temperatures up to three degrees during the rush hour, while still keeping you comfortable.
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot or cold. But if you start to feel uncomfortable, you can change the temperature at any time.
