Rush Hour Rewards
PVREA will pay you to use less energy when everyone else is using more. And your Nest Thermostat can do it automatically.
How It Works – Rush Hour Rewards Bonuses
- Poudre Valley REA wants to lower demand during energy rush hours, like those hot summer afternoons when everyone’s cranking up the air conditioning.
- A Nest thermostat can help you use less energy by tweaking the temperatures up to three degrees during the rush hour, while still keeping you comfortable.
- You’re in control. If you’re home, Nest won’t let it get too hot. But if you start to feel warm, you can change the temperature at any time.
- You need to be a Poudre Valley REA member with central air conditioning or a heat pump, and working Wi-Fi to participate. Even if you already have a Nest thermostat, PVREA will give you a $50 bill credit for signing up for Rush Hour Rewards. Plus, you’ll receive an additional $30 bill credit after the cooling season if you stay enrolled. Members can purchase up to 3 thermostats per account, and will receive one Rush Hour Rewards bonus.
