Smart Thermostat Pilot Program 

Save energy, stay comfortable, and help keep energy affordable for our hometown 

GUC has partnered with ecobee to help reward our customers for using less energy when everyone else is using more. If you have an ecobee thermostat, sign up for the Smart Thermostat Pilot Program using eco+ to automatically adjust the temperature during peak demand periods, while keeping you in control. As a thank-you and added bonus, the Smart Thermostat Pilot Program will reward you with a one-time $50 enrollment incentive, in the form of a bill credit, as well as monthly $5 bill credit for each thermostat enrolled in the program.
