Sawnee Smart Savers FAQ
Confirm your eligibility for the Sawnee Smart Savers program with these three questions:
Are you a Sawnee EMC residential customer?
Do you use your thermostat to control your central air conditioning system?
Will you allow Sawnee EMC to make short, low impact thermostat adjustments on high energy usage days?
If you confirm these three questions, please choose whether you have an internet-connected thermostat to enroll in the Sawnee Smart Savers program or if you would like to purchase an existing thermostat.
If you have an existing thermostat, please select your thermostat among the eligible models. If you don’t have an existing eligible thermostat, please choose a model, purchase and install it. Once you have installed and activated, come back to enroll your new thermostat in the Power Partner Thermostat program.

Participating in the program allows Sawnee EMC to make brief, limited adjustments to your home’s thermostat during periods of peak electric demand. These adjustments will only affect the temperature of your home by a few degrees, with minimal impact on comfort. Adjustment periods will occur during weekday afternoons, with each lasting a maximum of five hours.
Yes, you can opt out of any thermostat adjustment for any reason. You can opt out from your thermostat, mobile device, or web app. For the majority of devices, when you opt out of the pre-cool, you are also opting out of the temperature adjustment. If you own an ecobee device, you must also opt out the temperature adjustment.
Typically, NO. Not unless you have multiple HVAC systems, and you have a Load Management switch installed on one (1) HVAC unit, and another unit that does NOT have a switch installed on it. A single HVAC unit cannot participate in the Sawnee Smart Savers program and the Load Management Switch program at the same time. If a member would like to participate in the Sawnee Smart Savers program, the Load Management switch(es) must be removed. If a member applies to enroll in the Sawnee Smart Savers program and Load Management switch(es) are installed, they will receive an email with additional information about how they wish to proceed.
