Utilities Kingston reports this week that it is offering a $100 bill credit on the purchase of smart thermostats to the first 250 eligible customers to apply by December 31, 2019.
This Save on Energy program is for residential customers who receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston and offered along with Kingston Hydro and in collaboration with the Independent Electricity System Operator.
As stated in the agency’s release, smart thermostats use motion and occupancy sensors to automatically adjust temperatures and maximize energy-efficiency and users can also adjust the thermostat remotely via WiFi.
According to Caitlin Newey, Conservation Officer for Utilities Kingston, having a smart thermostat can reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions and resulting energy conservation may also extend the life of utility infrastructure.
“We want to help our customers save energy,” said Newey. “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.”
Customers who received both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston can learn more and apply at its Smart Thermostats page.
Utilities Kingston explained how it works as follows:
- Buy and install a smart thermostat that meets the technical requirements. The program applies to smart thermostats purchased and installed from Oct. 7 to Dec. 31.
- Complete the online application by Dec. 31 and send proof of payment to Utilities Kingston.
- If you are eligible, and one of the first 250 to apply, Utilities Kingston will apply a credit of $100 to your utility account. (You must receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston.)
