HOW IT WORKS
If you are an Indiana Michigan Power residential customer and own a smart thermostat to control your central AC or heat pump, you may be eligible to participate! If you don’t own one yet, you can get one with an instant rebate.
I&M will reward you for conserving energy by making small, temporary adjustments to your smart thermostat during peak energy demand.

Power Rewards: Smart Thermostat pays you for reducing energy use when energy demand is high. Plus, you will receive $25 just for enrolling.
Shifting energy use away from high-demand periods allows us to rely on more renewable sources of energy. This helps keep prices more affordable for you and your community, plus helps the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
Your Wi-Fi / smart thermostat will also help you save year-round. It makes it easy and convenient to manage your home’s energy use and bill. You can adjust your thermostat on the go or simply set an automatic schedule to optimize your energy usage based on your routine.

When energy use is high, on really hot and humid days, I&M will hold a Peak Energy Use Event. During the event, your smart thermostat will cycle your AC compressor to reduce the high-energy demand on the electrical grid. Your central AC fan will continue to circulate air throughout your home. This will affect the temperature of your home by a few degrees, with minimal impact on comfort.
You can opt out of an event at any time, for any reason. Once the typical 2-3 hours event is over, your thermostat will trigger your AC to automatically adjust the temperature to your normal setting and schedule.
You will earn up to $2.40 per event. With up to 15 events per summer, the savings can add up! And you probably won’t even notice an event is taking place. Enroll Now!
