New technology gives consumers more access to energy consumption patterns

6/8/2009

Budget-conscious consumers can save money with the improved TXU Energy iThermostatTM.

Customers can save up to $180 or more per year by using pre-programmed ENERGY STAR® profiles, for an average household.

The iThermostat is a fully Web-enabled programmable thermostat that lets customers monitor and manage their home's temperature from any Internet device.

Enhancements to the second generation of the iThermostat allow customers to:

  • Track and monitor daily heating and cooling costs from any broadband internet connection anywhere in the world
  • Get e-mail alerts with customized energy efficiency tips and daily consumption estimates
  • Monitor up to four iThermostat devices per household through a secured, personalized Web site

"Our focus is on helping customers control their energy use so they can save money," said Jim Burke, chief executive officer, TXU Energy.  "Combined with the TXU Energy Conservation program, this new tool will help accomplish that and help the environment at the same time."

The iThermostat is available to TXU Energy customers in single-family homes, in the Oncor service territory, who enroll in the TXU Energy Conservation Program. To get the new iThermostat, those customers can call 1-866-733-1807 or go online at txu.com/iThermostat

The new programmable iThermostat comes with a broadband gateway device that's like a small modem and an Ethernet cable.  A TXU Energy Authorized Dealer NetworkSM technician will install the equipment and ensure it is communicating with the network.  For more information on the TXU Energy Authorized Dealer NetworkSM, visit: txu.com/adn
