We are excited for our Utility partner Xcel Energy! After seeing great success with their online store, XcelEnergyStore.com, for their Colorado residential customers, Xcel Energy has made the store available to its Minnesota customers to save energy and money.
The online store offers Minnesota residents a $50 instant rebate and free shipping on smart thermostats from Nest Labs, Honeywell, and ecobee. As the most wanted connected home device, smart thermostats are sweeping past being a trend and becoming a must have in the home. With less than seven percent of people accessing available utility rebates, stores like the Xcel Energy Store make it easy and simple to receive rebate savings on top-of-the-line products instantly.
Xcel Energy is just one of many Utilities across the country building online stores to offer customers innovative ways to save. In a recent survey, we found that less than 5 percent know they can purchase smart thermostats from their Utility company. That finding motivates us to get the word about about this great offer!
