Smart Energy Savings programs use internet technology-supported energy monitoring and management devices and capabilities, commonly known as “smart” tools, designed to save money on member-owners’ electric bills. These smart tool programs achieve cost-savings in a variety of ways, such as helping member-owners track and manage their own energy use and automatically decreasing use during peak demand times without affecting comfort levels. Lowering power use during peak demand times saves the Co-op money by keeping the overall cost of electricity down, and empowering member-owners to decrease energy consumption helps lower monthly electric bills.
The Co-op offers member-owners a variety of Smart Energy Savings options shown here.
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 Nest thermostats.
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.
