We Pay You $85 When You Enroll Your Thermostat in Energy Cycling
Through our Power Partner Thermostat offering, Austin Energy will pay you an $85 incentive for each approved Internet-connected thermostat you enroll in our voluntary energy cycling program.
Energy cycling occurs on the hottest days of the year. On these days, Austin Energy will briefly adjust your thermostat settings by a few degrees only as needed during peak energy demand. Your participation in energy cycling can help increase your energy savings while helping to reduce peak demand on our electrical grid.
Support and Energy Cycling Continues for Free Thermostat Customers
The Power Partner Thermostat offering replaces the former Free Thermostats offering. However, if you still have your Free Thermostat, Austin Energy continues to service and cycle that thermostat. If you need service assistance, please call 877-549-2774.

Austin Energy offers rebates and loans that will help you save energy and money on the cost of cooling and heating your home.
You can use our free, interactive web app to monitor your daily energy consumption, set tier alerts, view your bill history and forecast your energy bill cost using your mobile device or personal computer.
