However, you always have the final say in your home’s temperature! You can change your thermostat back at any time by using your smart thermostat’s wall unit or smart phone app.
To be eligible for Piedmont Electric rebates and credits, you must register your Nest smart thermostat online and participate in the Piedmont Electric Smart Thermostat Savings Program. You must have Wi-Fi to participate in this program.
