    Connected Thermostats

    Photo of a thermostat.By replacing a non-web-enabled thermostat with a web-connected thermostat, non-residential customers with electric and gas heating systems can save energy. Savings result from the thermostat's ability to program operating schedules, temperature set-points, and supply-fan operation during unoccupied periods. 

    We pay a $200 rebate for upgrading a non-web-enabled thermostat in commercial spaces to a Connected Thermostat. Non-electric heat sources are also eligible for this program.

    To be eligible, the new Connected Thermostat must be found on BPA's Qualified Products List (QPL) and a Connected Thermostat Project Information Form must be completed and submitted to the PUD.

    Thermostat Requirements

    Products that are on the QPL meet these requirements and specifications:

    • Limited duration occupied-period override.
    • Multiple set-back schedules with energy-saving temperature set-points during unoccupied periods including evenings, holidays and breaks.
    • The supply fan is scheduled to operate continuously during occupied periods, and to operate in 'auto' mode during unoccupied periods.
    • Remote, web-based monitoring and programming.
    • Battery and memory back-up to retain settings during power or internet losses.
