AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you are contemplating a new Wi-Fi enabled thermostat, Austin Energy has added another option that can save you some money.

Honeywell Inc. has been added to the utility company’s Power Partner Thermostat Program. Austin Energy customers who purchase and install a qualifying Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat will receive a $25 rebate.

If you purchased your Honeywell thermostat last month, you’re still eligible to receive the rebate as long as the purchase was made in the last 60 days. Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats work the same way as the other “smart” thermostats. The thermostat allows customers to adjust their settings remotely with smart devices.

“We’re pleased to add the popular Honeywell brand to our suite of choices for our customers,” said Debbie Kimberly, Austin Energy Vice President of Customer Energy Solutions. “The Power Partner Thermostat Program also connects our customers with services that drive customer value. This is one of many programs and rebates we offer to help our customers save money and energy.”

If you want to receive another $85 incentive, you can enroll in the Austin Energy’s Power Partner Thermostat Energy Cycling Program. When you’re enrolled in this program, Austin Energy can take control of your thermostat and adjust the temperature as needed during peak electricity demand. Austin Energy says this program allows can help increase a customer’s energy savings and reduce the costs associated with delivering power to all customers.
