Join Austin Energy’s Power Partner SM program and receive $50!

Austin Energy will give you a $50 enrollment incentive & $25 annually for each approved Wi-Fi-connected thermostat when you enroll in the voluntary smart energy savings events.


    Requirements: You need to be an Austin Energy customer with central air conditioning to participate.

  • $25 Annual Incentive

    Receive $25 annually for each thermostat that remains enrolled in the program.


    Power Partner events usually only occur on the hottest days of the year. On these days, Austin Energy will briefly adjust your thermostat settings by a few degrees only as needed during peak energy demand. Your participation in Power Partner events will help to fulfill community-wide demand for electric service and to keep prices low for everyone.

  • Risk-Free

    You can opt-out of energy savings events from your mobile device, web browser or thermostat.

  • Here’s how it works:

    • Power Partner events will occur only between 3:00-6:00 p.m. during the summer (June 1 – Sept. 30), excluding rare emergencies.
    • Adjust your thermostat upward 2 to 4 degrees, no higher than 85 degrees.
    • Occur on weekdays only (no weekends or holidays).
    • Occur no more than three times per week and no more than 25 times during the summer period.
    • Adjust your thermostat downward 2 to 4 degrees roughly 30 minutes before the event to provide temporary comfort once the event begins.
