About PG&E's Smart Thermostat Trial

PG&E is excited to announce it is the first utility in the nation to evaluate the new Smart Thermostat product through a 12 month customer trial. Opower and Honeywell have partnered to create an innovative thermostat solution, which allows customers to program and monitor heating and cooling energy usage, not just from the thermostat itself, but also remotely via internet-connected devices like smartphones. This solution also gives customers the ability to create optimal thermostat schedules that fit their lifestyles and provides customized tips to help trim their energy bills.
