Cooling an empty home (when you are at work throughout the day or away on vacation) can cause summer energy bills to soar. ‘Smart’ thermostats provide an easy solution to high seasonal bills. ComEd’s “One Million Smart Thermostats” initiative, launched in 2015, is a partnership between Illinois utilities and the advocacy groups Environmental Law & Policy Center and Citizens Utility Board. Under this initiative, smart thermostats are eligible for up to $150 in rebates offered by ComEd and other Illinois gas utilities for customers with Wi-Fi, central air and a furnace.
