Consumers Energy Provides Free Smart Thermostats w/ DR Enrollment

By Crystal Leaver on

Michigan Sunset

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing many residential customers’ energy usage to increase substantially, Consumers Energy looked for a way to help their customers save energy and money while also reaching their own clean energy goals. The Michigan utility’s Clean Energy Plan aims to eliminate coal and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040–not an easy task!

Consumers Energy quickly thought creatively, partnering with Uplight and Google to provide free Google Nest smart thermostats to up to 100,000 households with demand response (DR) pre-enrollment. Demand response pre-enrollment results in 4X enrollments compared to bring your own device programs–enabling more Michigan households to save! 

Download the case study to find out more about the program.
