TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ecobee, a subsidiary of Generac Power Systems (NYSE: GNRC), today announced it is offering a free ecobee3 lite smart thermostat ($149.99 value) or $100 off the brand-new Smart Thermostat Premium (regular price $249.99) to eligible ConEd customers in Westchester County, New York for a limited time when they enroll in the ConEd ecosave program by March 31, 2023. ConEd ecosave is a voluntary energy saving program from ecobee that helps support a more stable and reliable power grid in local communities when energy is in high demand.
Customers who switch to an ecobee smart thermostat and enroll in the ConEd ecosave program can also help reduce their families’ energy costs, which are predicted to rise. According to recent ConEd estimates, the average Westchester County customer's electricity bill is expected to rise by 27% this winter, from $160 last year to $203, due to increases in the market cost of natural gas. And, the average residential natural gas heating customer will pay $460 a month from November 2022 to March 2023, compared to the $348 average last year.¹ ecobee smart thermostats can help alleviate these rising energy costs and help customers save up to 26% on their annual heating and cooling costs.²
“At ecobee, we remain committed to offering innovative smart home solutions that address real problems customers are facing, such as rising energy bills caused by inflation, and grid stability challenges caused by periods of high demand on the power grid,” said Tamara Dzubay, Director, Energy and Emerging Markets at ecobee. “We’re excited to offer a free ecobee3 lite or $100 off the brand-new Smart Thermostat Premium to help customers in Westchester County conserve energy and save money without sacrificing their comfort.”
In 2022 alone, ecobee helped customers save 5.28TWh of energy, which is the equivalent of taking over 800,000 gas-powered cars off the road for one year or avoiding the consumption of 421 million gallons of gasoline.
ConEd customers in Westchester County who already have an ecobee smart thermostat can receive a $100 digital gift card by enrolling in the ConEd ecosave program in the ecobee app. For ecobee and ConEd customers not in the Westchester County area, they are invited to enroll in the program through the ecobee app for a chance to win one of two $2,500 prizes.
