Members will receive a $25 billing credit when they enroll in DEC’s Beat the Peak with Thermostats Program!
Members who install or who have already installed most Nest, Honeywell, HoneywellLyric, Ecobee and Sensi/emerson programmable thermostats are eligible for the program. Members will agree to allow DEC to adjust their thermostats a few degrees during summer Beat the Peak alerts. We issue the alerts when the price of energy is high. By allowing your Co-op to automatically adjust your programmable thermostat a few degrees, you’ll be helping to lower the cost of power for all members. Find deals on programmable thermostats at the Energize Delaware Marketplace!
Aside from the initial $25 billing credit, participating members will also receive a $5 credit on their electric bill during the months of June, July, August and September. Members who previously signed up for our Beat the Peak with Nest program will automatically be transferred over to this new program. Please note, if you signed up for this program in 2021, 2022 or 2023 you do not need to reregister to continue receiving a credit!
In addition to all Ecobee thermostats, the following thermostats are compatible with the program;
Amazon: Amazon Smart Thermostat
Honeywell Home: T5+ Smart Thermostat, T6 Pro Smart Thermostat, T9 Smart Thermostat, T10 Smart Thermostat
Honeywell TCC: Wi-Fi Smart Color Thermostat, Wi-Fi 7-Day Programmable Thermostat, Wi-Fi 9000 7-Day Programmable Thermostat, 9000 Smart Thermostat, 7-Day Programmable Smart Thermostat, VisionPro 8000 Smart Thermostat, Round Smart Thermostat

Because Beat the Peak alerts take place during the summer, members who register for the program using the links below will be enrolled in the spring of 2024. Members will receive a notification once approved and will then receive billing credits. Please sign up using the link that corresponds to your thermostat manufacture.
Please Note: Homes with more than one programmable thermostat are not eligible for an additional credit. From the time of signup, it could take 14 business days for approval by DEC. Once approved, you will receive an email directly from Connected Savings letting you know you are now enrolled in the DEC program. To receive a monthly credit, a member must use at least 500 kWh per month.
