Utilities Kingston Offering Customers $100 Credit for Installing Smart Thermostats

Published on: 2021/12/06 - in News

Utilities Kingston is offering $100 bill credit on the purchase of smart thermostats to its residential customers who receive natural gas services.

The program is in response to rising natural gas prices around the world due to the resurging economy increasing energy demand.

Smart thermostats use motion and occupancy sensors to automatically adjust temperatures, maximizing energy-efficiency, and can also be adjusted remotely using WiFi.

“We want to help our customers save energy. 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,” says Kevin McCauley, Chief Customer and Technology Officer for Utilities Kingston. “Getting a smart thermostat is a great step you can take to reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Conservation also extends the life of utility infrastructure.”
