Connected Thermostats and Low-Income Energy Programs: High Impact, Low Cost

Despite the acute need for energy affordability, lowering energy costs for low-income households is a perennial challenge. For decades, traditional weatherization programs have proven successful in reducing the energy burden, but now a growing number of low-income programs are looking at a new class of energy efficiency measures driven by advanced technologies, including smart thermostats.

In this white paper, Nest describes the findings from various partnerships and pilots, including that installing Nest thermostats with other energy efficiency measures and delivered an average savings of 24 percent.

Through this and other utility partnerships, Nest showcases how low-income program managers are actively choosing Nest thermostats for their unique ability to deliver high-impact energy savings at a reasonable cost, improve comfort, and adjust to individual households’ preferences.
