Save even more when you enroll your smart thermostat in Smart Thermostat Rewards.

A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that can automatically adjust heating and cooling temperature settings in your home for optimal performance. For the average household, almost half the annual energy bill goes to heating and cooling – more than $900 a year! Being smart about how you control your temperature settings will help you save money and stay comfortable in your home.

Smart Thermostat Rewards Program

Enroll in the Smart Thermostat Rewards Program before September 30 and receive $25 after your first summer of enrollment. Plus, if you participate in at least 75% of the event hours of the summer season, you will receive an additional $10, for a total first-year incentive award of $35, and $10 per year thereafter.

Plus, each month you will receive a Connected Savings Energy Scorecard based on your individual HVAC runtime data and setpoint patterns. You can learn more about the Connected Savings Energy Scorecard here.

Participants help Dominion Energy manage higher energy demand by allowing specific, short-term adjustments to your HVAC system via your wi-fi thermostat. In most cases, you won’t notice adjustments to your home’s HVAC system, or your comfort. And you’ll always have ultimate control.

Customers do not have to purchase a smart thermostat through the Dominion Energy program to participate in this program.

What to Expect

Here’s what you can expect when you enroll in Smart Thermostat Rewards:

  • Make sure your thermostat is connected to the internet
  • Should your device remain offline for 10 consecutive days, you will receive an email. If the device remains offline for a total of 30 days, it will be unenrolled from the program, which effects your incentive.
  • There will be a maximum of 45 energy events each year.
  • Energy events will occur between 6:00 a.m and 10:00 p.m. in the program season (April 1-September 30), Monday through Sunday, excluding holidays.
  • An emergency event could be called on a holiday. Very rarely, Dominion Energy may call an emergency event with little to no warning. These are a last resort to avoid rolling blackouts and other potential electrical grid issues.
  • There won’t be more than one event per day unless a standard event is followed by an emergency event.
  • If you notice a change in comfort level, you can adjust the temperature at any time. Adjustments will impact your participation incentive.
  • Participation incentives are issued at the end of each summer season. To qualify for the maximum rebate you must participate in at least 75% of the total summer event hours in a season.
  • If you have a heat pump, you may experience winter events. Opting out of these events does not impact your participation incentives.
