Utilities Kingston Promotes Energy-Efficiency Program as a Climate Action

Published on: 2020/04/22 - in Releases

RELEASE — As you spend more time at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may worry about increased energy-use in your household. That’s why, for this Earth Day, Utilities Kingston is reminding its customers about a Save on Energy Community Program that can help you save energy and money, while taking climate action. The program offers a $100 bill-credit on the purchase of smart thermostats to the first 250 eligible customers to apply by Dec. 31, 2020.

A smart thermostat helps you conserve the energy used to heat or cool your home, and is one way residents can take climate action. Earth Day, celebrated yearly on April 22, promotes events held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

“We want to help Kingstonians save energy and money. 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, while also taking climate action,” says Caitlin Newey, Conservation Officer for Utilities Kingston.

Smart thermostats use motion and occupancy sensors to automatically adjust temperatures and maximize energy-efficiency. Users can also adjust the thermostat remotely via WiFi.
