NYSEG announces the roll out of its Smart Savings Rewards program. To join the program customers need to have an internet-connected smart thermostat installed that NYSEG can control remotely to make brief, limited adjustments during times of peak summer electricity demand.

The company says for each internet-connected smart thermostat at a customer’s home they will give an $85 gift card plus a $5 bill credit for each adjustment event they fully participate in through September 30.
