El Paso Electric launched its first-ever rebate program with Uplight, the only Marketplace enabling utilities to drive value beyond smart thermostats with the ability to bundle demand response enrollments and cross-sell additional programs. The EPE Marketplace offers Texas customers a wide variety of energy-savings products including smart thermostats, smart home offerings, lighting, and advanced power strips along with the ability to automatically enroll in Uplight’s demand management program.
For the last 11 out of 12 years, Texas has hit a new peak demand record each year, making the EPE’s demand management program, the Energy Wise Savings Program, an important tool. By strategically cooling homes before a demand response event, the utility keeps customers comfortable while reducing peak load. Customers also have the opportunity to save in a variety of ways. Not only can EPE customers get rebates to reduce the cost of their favorite smart thermostat, but they also receive incentives for participating in the demand response program.
