DEC's Beat the Peak with Thermostat's program saves members money on electricity.

Our Beat the Peak with Thermostats program will save members money and help to keep Co-op rates affordable! Members can receive a $25 billing credit when they enroll in the program. Members who install, or have already installed, a program eligible Nest, Lux, Honeywell, Ecobee, Radio Thermostat, Sensi and Vivint programmable thermostats can participate in the program. Members will agree to allow DEC to adjust their thermostats a few degrees during summer Beat the Peak alerts. Alerts are issued 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. 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. Homes with more than one programmable thermostat are not eligible for an additional credit. DEC’s combined Beat the Peak programs have saved members more than $36 million dollars since 2008 and are one of the reasons the Co-op’s electric rates are some of the lowest in the region!
