Smart Energy Savings

Smart thermostats are great energy-saving tools. Now you can save even more energy and earn up to $150 in rewards with our free Connected Conservation program.

It’s easy to conserve & save

Connected Conservation helps lessen demand when there’s a need in Texas. Your smart thermostat will be automatically adjusted by a few degrees for a short time. We’ll notify you when there’s a conservation event, and you’ll always have control of your thermostat if you don’t want to participate at that time. As a thanks for enrolling, we’ll send you rewards worth up to $150.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does Connected Conservation work?

    ERCOT, your Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) or TXU Energy may make a call for conservation during a particularly hot summer afternoon or cold winter morning. We’ll adjust your thermostat a few degrees from your set temperature until there’s no longer an extreme need. Your thermostat will automatically go back to your previous temperature. You can override any Connected Conservation event setting if you prefer not to participate.

  • Am I eligible to participate in the program?

    You must be a current TXU Energy customer and have a qualifying smart thermostat installed at your residential service address. You‘ll also need an active Wi-Fi network connection to your smart thermostat.

  • Which smart thermostats are eligible?

    At this time, only certain Resideo, Amazon and Sensi smart thermostats are compatible with our program. See all compatible models here.

  • I don’t have a smart thermostat – can I still participate?

    You’ll need a qualifying smart thermostat to participate. You can purchase one through Resideo, EE Incentives, or a third-party retailer.

  • How do I get my reward?

    You must sign up for Connected Conservation, agree to the program’s Terms and Conditions and successfully connect your smart thermostat. After you’ve successfully connected, we’ll email your reward, which will include a link to redeem for your choice of $50 in gift cards, a $50 prepaid card or choose to triple your reward value to $150 by purchasing energy efficiency-products from our partner’s online store.

  • Will I know when my thermostat’s being adjusted?

    Your app will post an alert when a conservation event starts. If you have push notifications turned on, you’ll get one each time there’s an event.

  • Can I sign up with multiple smart thermostats?

    You can connect as many qualifying smart thermostats as are installed in your home. You’ll only be eligible to reward one reward per household, but the more thermostats you sign up, the most energy you’ll conserve.

  • What if I have problems with my thermostat?

    If you have trouble with your thermostat or have questions about installation or use, contact your thermostat manufacturer’s customer support team directly.

  • What if I change my mind and no longer want to participate in the program?
