A $100 bill credit is being offered by Utilities Kingston to the first 250 eligible customers who purchase and install smart thermostats and apply by December 31, 2020. Smart thermostats use motion and occupancy sensors to automatically adjust temperatures, maximizing energy-efficiency, and can also be adjusted remotely using WiFi.
This Save on Energy program is for residential customers who receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston and is being offered by the utility along with Kingston Hydro in collaboration with the Independent Electricity System Operator.
“We want to help our customers save energy,” said Caitlin Newey, Conservation Officer for Utilities Kingston. “A smart thermostat helps you conserve the energy used to heat or cool your home and saves you money on your biggest home energy cost,” adding that smart thermostats help reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and extend the life of utility infrastructure.
Residents who receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston can find out more and apply online at its Smart Thermostats page.
