It took me a few minutes to save $100 dollars on my electric bill this month:
1. I signed up for the NEST OPPD program
2. Within a week, I saw a $100 credit on my OPPD bill
3. I will get another 20 dollars at the end of summer
A few months ago, I installed the NEST E thermostat (the cheapest one). It took some DIY skills since I did not want to pay for installation. It has been one of my favorite purchases in the last couple of years. I can probably say the NEST thermostat has increased my happiness since I no longer throw a fit when I come home to find out my wife left the air conditioning full power all day while she was at the zoo with the kids.
I set it up so that it turns off while both my wife and I are not home. There are plenty of other fancy features, of which I really use none. For example, the thermostat learns from your usual habits. Unfortunately, in my house the usual is that I try to always save (turn it up during summer above 80 degrees) and down during winter (below 65) while my wife likes to live in between 74 and 76 degrees year-round (like normal people). We would just drive the thermostat crazy.
There is an offer up to September 2, 2018, for a mini- NEST E bundle for 169.
If you were already thinking about buying it then you can look at it costing only 50 bucks if you use the OPPD deal. However, if you are a lucky person like me and already have it in your house, then spend 5 minutes signing up and cash in on the $120 dollars. Happy savings!
