Home Energy Management

Comfort, Convenience and Savings

Our Smart Thermostat can help you lower your bills using advanced technologies and tools that enable you to use energy more efficiently. An added benefit of your participation is you also help reduce the load on Nevada’s electric grid during times of peak electricity demand when power is typically more expensive to buy and produce. This keeps costs down for everyone.

You will receive a smart thermostat designed to make your heating and cooling system operate more efficiently. Through web-based software you can adjust your temperature settings from anywhere - on your computer or mobile device. The efficiency software makes automatic adjustments based on your customized comfort settings and current weather information. The average home can save up to 10-15% on monthly cooling costs.

How Does it Work?

  • Once the system is installed, you’ll have access to the online portal to set-up customized schedules and temperature settings. You can easily manage preferences and view savings reports from your computer or smart-phone.

  • The Smart Thermostat software optimizes how your thermostat and heating/cooling system work by making slight adjustments to your HVAC runtime and temperature settings. Your Smart Thermostat finds ways to save energy and adapts based on individualized factors - like the thermal properties of your home, outside weather conditions, and your personalized comfort settings.

  • During the peak summer months, on days when the demand for electricity is at its highest, NV Energy will occasionally initiate Energy Events. A signal is sent to your thermostat to increase the setpoint temperature up to 4 degrees. These events are optional and help reduce power consumption and electricity load to ensure a stable energy supply. By participating, you can earn Rebate Credits that get applied to your bill at the end of the year.
