Need A Smart Thermostat?

You can get a smart thermostat through Pepco’s other residential energy efficiency programs listed below. Not all ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats are eligible for the program, so be sure to confirm the model you choose is eligible for Energy Wise Rewards before purchasing or installing.

Already an Energy Wise Rewards Participant, But Want a Smart Thermostat?

Energy Wise Rewards participants who would like to transition from an Energy Wise Rewards thermostat to a smart thermostat can still participate in the program! Please contact us so your Energy Wise Rewards thermostat can be collected. Then, install your eligible smart thermostat and enroll in Energy Wise Rewards.

If you have an Energy Wise Rewards outdoor switch and are participating in the program, you should not enroll your smart thermostat in Energy Wise Rewards. You can continue to participate in Energy Wise Rewards via your outdoor switch.
