How the Rush Hour Rewards Program Works

Rush Hour Rewards offered by South Fork Peak Savers helps you earn rewards for saving energy during peak demand periods, while still keeping you comfortable. Your Nest thermostat will automatically tune temperatures before and during a summer Rush Hour to reduce the strain on the electrical grid and your energy company. You don’t have to worry about when the next Rush Hour is coming or remember to adjust the temperature. Rush Hour Rewards does it for you. And if you ever get uncomfortable, you can simply change the temperature on your thermostat.

When you sign up for Rush Hour Rewards, you give Nest permission to make minor, short-term adjustments to your air conditioning via your Nest thermostat. This small change (usually 1-3°) reduces power use during periods of high demand for electricity and reduces strain on the electric system. In most cases, you won’t notice adjustments to the central air conditioning system, or your comfort. And, you’ll always have ultimate control.

Using less power pays off! You’ll have lower bills and it provides more stable costs for everyone since this small change reduces the need to build new power plants.

What is the Nest Learning Thermostat?

The Nest Learning Thermostat automatically adapts as your life and the seasons change. Just use it for a week and it programs itself. Your Thermostat controls half your energy bill – more than appliances more than electronics. Nest is the first thermostat to get ENERGY STAR certified. It learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved billions of kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide.* And independent studies showed that it saved people an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.

Nest shows you how much energy you use every day in Energy History and every month in your home report. So you can see when you use more energy, like on weekends or Monday nights, and how to use less. Learn more about the Rush Hour Rewards Program – A Service Offered by Nest.





“So, we love our FREE Nests and the fact that this program is helping to reduce energy use on the East End especially during the summer season.  It’s nice to participate in helping keep the electric use down – without even noticing it!”

Ellen Dioguardi, Sag Harbor

“By simply signing up for Nest’s Rush Hour rewards program through South Fork Peak Savers, I received a check for $250!  The process was easy, non-intrusive and most importantly, I’m helping my community reduce the peak electric demand. I found the Eco feature to be great and the fact that it uses my iPhone to know I’m almost home is very cool.”

Colin Fraser, East Hampton

“The South Fork Peak Savers program is an easy and effective way for every South Fork household to make a difference that saves energy and lowers their electric bill.  It’s like getting paid twice to do the right thing.”

Bob DeLuca, Group for the East End President
