It can be easy to forget to turn off your lights, shut off your thermostat, or unplug electronics. That’s OK – smart controls are now available to do the work for you. Learn more below:
Smart power strips
Programmable and learning thermostats
“Learning” thermostats are the smartest thermostats, detecting when you’re in and out of the house, allowing you to control your heating and cooling from your phone, and adjusting itself automatically depending on your heating and cooling preferences. National Grid customers can currently receive a $100 instant rebate on the NEST Learning Thermostat.
MassSAVE offers significant discounts for commercial, industrial, municipal, institutional, educational, and non-profit entities (see table below).:
Residents can also install equipment like motion sensors for their own home, but MassSAVE does not offer rebates. The best way of remembering might be an old-fashioned one – Greenovate Boston offer stickers and decals for light switches to help you remember.
