The Nest Thermostat works in most homes with low voltage systems—make sure it'll work in yours. Most people install it themselves in 30 minutes or less.

Rush Hour Rewards

Sign up for the Degrees of Difference with Nest program and Reliant will credit your bill $5 per month from May through October, for a total of $30.

Here’s how it works:

  • When everyone is using their AC at the same time during hot summer months, it places extreme demands on the electric grid. This creates an energy rush hour.
  • Nest Thermostat can help you use less energy during those rush hours by automatically tweaking your temperatures.
  • You’re in control. Nest won’t tweak the temperature by more than three degrees. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
