    Smart thermostats give homeowners more control over their heating and cooling energy use. We offer a $100 rebate for the installation of a smart thermostat.

    Benefits of Smart Thermostats

    Control your home's heating and cooling system with a smartphone by installing a smart thermostat.

    • Energy savings - Smart thermostats have sensors to detect movement, and will automatically lower the temperature in the house to cut energy waste when you're away.
    • Set temperature remotely - Control your heating and cooling system from anywhere through apps on your smartphone or tablet.
    • Track energy use - The apps built into the smart thermostat allow users to track how many hours their heating or cooling system has been in use.

    Program Requirements

    We offer a $100 rebate to Columbia River PUD customers with electric heat for the installation of qualified smart thermostats. Qualified devices can be found on this list. They may be self-installed or installed by a professional.

    To receive our rebate, fill out our Smart Thermostat Project Information Form. Then return the form and a copy of your receipt to the PUD. Please contact our Energy Experts before beginning your project. They may be reached at (503) 366-5470 or .

    To take advantage of a smart thermostat, a house must have Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi allows the thermostat to get a home report using weather data, to update settings automatically, and to connect to smartphones or tablets.
