Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) Program

If you’re one of the hundreds of Roanoke Electric Cooperative member-owners with an internet-connected thermostat, you could be eligible to earn $75 upfront and $4 per month by participating in an upcoming Bring Your Own Thermostat pilot program being developed.

Internet-connected thermostats, also called smart thermostats, that could qualify for the future program include Ecobee and Nest thermostats.

Enrolling in the program would allow Roanoke Electric Cooperative to send a signal to your thermostat to make brief, limited adjustments at times when energy demand is especially high and therefore most expensive. When the program launches, calling on these thermostats will reduce demand during peak times and increase service reliability. You will always have control of your thermostat and can change the settings at any time.

This program is an example of the types of technology Roanoke Electric Cooperative is pursuing and applying to better use the grid and serve cooperative members in new ways.
