Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats give homeowners more control over their heating and cooling energy use. We offer a $100 rebate for the installation of a smart thermostat.

Benefits of Smart Thermostats

Thermostat controlled from mobile phone and electronic tablet

  • Energy savings – Smart thermostats have sensors to detect movement, and will automatically lower the temperature in the house to cut energy waste when you’re away.
  • Set temperature remotely – Control your heating and cooling system from anywhere through apps on your smartphone or tablet.
  • Track energy use – The apps built into the smart thermostat allow users to track how many hours their heating or cooling system has been in use.

Program Requirements

We offer a $100 rebate to Columbia River PUD customers with electric heat for the installation of qualified smart thermostats. Qualified devices can be found on this list (PDF). They may be self-installed or installed by a professional.

To receive our rebate, fill out our Smart Thermostat Project Information Form (PDF) and return it.

We partner with Efficiency Services Group (ESG) to bring you this rebate program. Call ESG at (888) 883-9879 or email ESG to start your project.

To take advantage of a smart thermostat, a house must have Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi allows the thermostat to get a home report using weather data, to update settings automatically, and to connect to smartphones or tablets.
