If you feel uncomfortable installing your own smart thermostat, we can install an ecobee3 Lite for you – free of charge! Please make sure you have central AC, a Wi-Fi network (and the password) in your home prior to signing up. To request an installation, visit our enrollment portal.

By participating in AC Rewards, you agree to allow Xcel Energy to make adjustments to your thermostat during hot summer days.

When the demand for electricity is highest, you’ll help us manage these peaks and ease the strain on the electrical grid by cutting back just a little on the time your central air works to cool your home. You’ll have the ability to opt out of these events at any time, from either your thermostat, mobile device or web app, and return to your normal settings.

Eligiblity

To qualify, you must be an Xcel Energy residential electric customer with central air conditioning and have, or install, an eligible smart thermostat listed above. You will need an internet-connected wireless network (Wi-Fi). Customers who live in apartments or condominiums are not eligible.
