Rush Hour Rewards

Smart Savers Texas wants your help to reduce stress on the grid in your electricity service area. And your Nest Thermostat can do it automatically.

Here’s how it works:

  • Smart Savers Texas 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.

Rush Hour Rewards

  • Sign up for Rush Hour Rewards and you’ll be eligible for the Smart Savers Texas free electricity sweepstakes. You’ll get a new entry in the sweepstakes every time you fully participate in a rush hour event. (That means not turning your thermostat down during the rush hour event.)
  • Rush hour events happen when there’s unusually high demand on the grid or for system testing.
  • There won’t be more than 8 rush hour events each summer. Events will be no more than 4 hours long. Rush hours will occur between 1 and 7 p.m. and only on weekdays.
