Smart Thermostats Allow Remote Control

Smart thermostats help you control your home's comfort and save energy. Become a Power Partner to earn a bill credit and help keep rates low for your household and for the community.

Smart thermostats let you adjust your thermostat from anywhere using your smart phone, tablet, or computer. They can help you easily create schedules to automate your heating and cooling, saving you energy and money. Some models offer multiple sensors to provide optimal comfort throughout your home. Smart thermostats also integrate with other home automation or "smart" devices.

Summer Offer! From July 1 through September 6, get a $130 bill credit for each smart thermostat you enroll in the Power Partner program. Plus, earn a $25 rebate from Austin Energy for buying and installing a new smart thermostat.

  1. View the list of eligible thermostats.
  2. Apply for your $25 rebate within 90 days of purchase. You’ll need:
  • Your receipt.
  • Your thermostat manufacturer, model, and serial number.
  • Your Austin Energy Account number.

Earn $130 When You Enroll Your Thermostat in the Power Partner Program

In addition to the thermostat installation rebate, Austin Energy will pay you a $130 bill credit for each eligible smart thermostat you enroll in the voluntary Power Partner program. The program allows Austin Energy to adjust your thermostat by a few degrees only as needed to help manage high community energy use, known as peak energy demand.
