Austin Energy, ecobee launch smart thermostat program pilot

ecobee Inc. formed a strategic partnership with Austin Energy to launch the Texas utility's 2013 Power Partner Thermostat Program Pilot.

The goal of the pilot program is to help reduce the impact of high electricity demand during the months of June through September by remotely managing customers' thermostats during peak usage periods.

Participating customers will receive a rebate for $85 from Austin Energy within six weeks after enrolling in the program for every ecobee thermostat they have installed in their home.

ecobee works with over 2,800 heating and cooling service company partners that sell and support ecobee's energy management solutions. These service company relationships were important to Austin Energy's goals of allowing customers to purchase their energy management solutions from a trusted partner.
