Rush Hour Rewards

REC 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:

  • REC 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 adjusting the temperature ahead of time and tweaking it up to three degrees during the rush hour.
  • You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot or too cold. But if you start to feel uncomfortable, you can change the temperature at any time.
