Why we offer discounted smart thermostats:
Smart thermostats make it simple to save energy on heating and cooling costs. The Nest E Thermostat can cut heating bills saving the average U.S. household over $130 a year.
In addition to saving money, these energy efficiency upgrades can help Utah's wintertime air by reducing emissions that come from the combustion of natural gas. Reducing electricity consumption helps Utah reduce emissions from electricity generation. Using less natural gas and electricity generated by fossil fuels reduces greenhouse gasses at all times of the year, and can be a stepping stone to help us reach drawdown (the point at which global warming gasses peak, and then begin to steadily decline).
