Ameren offering rebates on smart thermostats
Ameren Illinois recently announced a new partnership with Google to provide smart thermostat rebates to residential customers.
As part of Ameren’s ongoing COVID-19 Economic Hardship Recovery Program, Ameren is working with Google to help customers lower their energy bills through the utilization and improved access to smart technologies.
According to Google, smart thermostats can help customers better manage energy usage and costs. The multi-national tech company reported that Nest Thermostat E users save an average of up to 15 percent on cooling costs and up to 12 percent on heating costs, totaling an estimated average saving of approximately $140 each year.
The offer from Ameren is valid until Sept. 15 and only on the Ameren Illinois Marketplace. Residential customers who have an Ameren Illinois heating source are also eligible to receive a variety of other smart thermostat brands for little to no cost.
Customers can access these devices in two ways:
Smart Savers Initiative – Customers living in certain zip codes may be eligible to receive a smart thermostat on us through the Ameren Illinois Smart Savers Initiative.
Online Marketplace – Residential customers can purchase low-cost smart thermostats from leading brands like Google, ecobee, Honeywell, and Emerson through the Ameren Illinois Online Marketplace. Ameren Illinois is offering customers a $125 discount and free shipping on top of the manufacturers' rebates resulting in steeply discounted prices on the devices.
