St. Charles offers smart thermostat rebate through Dec. 31

Updated 11/12/2018 11:13 AM

The City of St. Charles is offering a $50 rebate for residential utility customers who buy and install a Nest smart thermostat by Dec. 31.

Grant funding from the electricity supplier, the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency, allows the city to offer the rebate.


Nest is a programmable, Wi-Fi-connected thermostat that learns the daily pattern of your air conditioning or heat settings, and helps save money by showing how much energy you use and how to use less. It also lets you manage those settings from a computer or smartphone.

To be eligible for a rebate, installation must be completed and forms submitted by Dec. 31.
