Smart Thermostat Pilot Program

Benefits of taking part: rebates and more!

We are running a pilot program with Vancity to learn what energy and cost savings can be achieved in single family, duplex, and townhomes by using a smart thermostat.

The pilot study runs from September 2015 to December 2016. It will help us learn:

  • How much energy and greenhouse gas savings smart thermostats can help achieve
  • People's attitudes and adoption of smart thermostats 
  • Types of homes and demographics best suited to realizing the benefits of smart thermostats

Applications to take part are now closed.

What is a smart thermostat?

Smart thermostats can learn from your behaviours or sense when you're home, adjusting temperature accordingly, and automatically allowing you to control the climate of your home remotely.

You can tell a smart thermostat to turn off after you leave the house for work, and then spring back into action in just enough time to make the house nice and toasty or cool and comfortable depending on the season, by the time you to get home.
