Utilities Kingston offers $100 credit on smart thermostats to first 250 eligible customers
October 7, 2019 -
This Save on Energy program is for residential customers who receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston.
Utilities Kingston is offering a $100 bill credit on the purchase of smart thermostats to the first 250 eligible customers to apply by Dec. 31, 2019. This Save on Energy program is offered by Utilities Kingston and Kingston Hydro in collaboration with the Independent Electricity System Operator.
"We want to help our customers save energy. A smart thermostat helps you conserve the energy used to heat or cool your home and saves you money on your biggest home energy cost," says Caitlin Newey, Conservation Officer for Utilities Kingston. She notes that this conservation program is supported in part by the Independent Electricity System Operator.
Smart thermostats use motion and occupancy sensors to automatically adjust temperatures and maximize energy-efficiency. Users can also adjust the thermostat remotely via WiFi.
"Getting a smart thermostat is a great step you can take to reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Conservation also extends the life of utility infrastructure," says Newey.
Residents who receive both gas and electricity services from Utilities Kingston can find out more and apply online.
