Austin is a great place to live and run a business, but, let’s face it, the summers are brutal! Austin Energy has an easy way to better control your energy usage, save on your utility bill and put money back toward your bottom line with the Power Partner Thermostat Program. 


Austin Energy’s Power Partner Thermostat Program gives commercial customers up to $110 back for purchasing and installing an approved, Wi-Fi enabled thermostat and enrolling that thermostat in the energy cycling program.

These state-of-the-art thermostatscan give you the ability to control the temperature of one or more business facilities anywhere and anytime using your smart devices or computer. Some thermostat models also detect room occupancy for optimum energy usage, provide free monthly reports on energy savings and offer humidity control options.

Once you purchase and install your thermostat, apply for a $25 Power Partner Thermostat Installation Rebate. To receive an additional $85, sign up for the Power Partner Thermostat Energy Cycling Program and voluntarily allow brief adjustments to your thermostat’s temperature settings when demand for electricity is highest, like very hot summer weekdays between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. These adjustments occur no more than 17 days between June and September and help prevent outages community wide. Austin Energy does not perform energy cycling on weekends or holidays.
