RUSH HOUR REWARDS PROGRAM AGREEMENT FOR PUGET SOUND ENERGY CUSTOMERS
Thank you for your interest in the Rush Hour Rewards Program, a service offered by Nest Labs, Inc. (“Nest”).
Nest’s Rush Hour Rewards Program allows you to participate in a program for residential customers offered by Puget Sound Energy Inc. (“PSE”) using your Nest thermostat. As part of the Rush Hour Rewards Program, Nest’s servers will remotely inform your Nest thermostat of the existence of a PSE Rush Hour Rewards Program event, causing the Nest thermostat automatically to change the temperature set-point in your home on that day without any manual intervention by you. At any time that you desire, you may override this temperature set-point simply by turning your Nest thermostat to a different temperature or using the Nest website or mobile application.
Your agreement to these terms (“Agreement”) gives Nest permission to access and use your energy usage and billing information, to enable the Rush Hour Rewards Program and for PSE to enroll you in the Rush Hour Rewards Program, pursuant to the terms and conditions below. Any additional Nest thermostats installed at your PSE service address will be automatically enrolled in the Rush Hour Rewards Program.
