What is Connect to Save?

Connect to Save is a new way we can all work together to create big savings on power costs for your home and for the entire cooperative membership. Working together through this program, we will reduce demand for electricity at times when it peaks and is most expensive.


Get Started with a Smart Thermostat

As an electric cooperative member, you have an opportunity to purchase an ecobee or Google Nest smart thermostat for as little as $25 with free installation. These Wi-fi-enabled thermostats provide greater control of your heating and cooling needs, offer alerts and reminders, and can be controlled with your mobile devices for added convenience.

Save on Power

After your new thermostat is installed, the Connect to Save program will make minimal adjustments to your settings during periods of high electricity demand. These small actions multiplied across thousands of homes will create big savings on wholesale power costs. As an at-cost provider of electricity, saving on wholesale power costs benefits all members by keep costs low for the entire electric cooperative.
