Rush Hour Rewards

PSEG Long Island wants to 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:

  • PSEG Long Island wants to lower demand during energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s using more energy.
  • The Nest Thermostat can help you use less energy by cooling your home down ahead of time and tweaking the temperature up to three degrees during the rush hour.
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
