Temperature changes are dependent on the home’s characteristics including the year it was built, the efficiency of the air conditioner or heat pump system, energy efficient windows and the amount of insulation. Participation in the Program is not recommended for individuals who have physical or health issues, conditions or other sensitivities related to temperature or humidity or who have appliances or other equipment in the home that may be adversely affected by such temperature changes, humidity or other conditions in the home controlled by their Smart Thermostat.
  6. The participating Smart Thermostat must remain connected to the internet and activated with the manufacturer in order for the Customer to remain enrolled in the Program. If disconnection occurs for any of the following reasons, then the Customer must re-apply to the Program to re-enroll.
    • Customer has requested for the Smart Thermostat to be removed from the Program. If there is only one Smart Thermostat enrolled in the Program, this action will terminate the Customer’s enrollment.
    • The Smart Thermostat’s connection has been severed because it was removed, disabled, or reset on the associated manufacturer’s app or because the Smart Thermostat was activated by a different user.
    • The Smart Thermostat has been offline for greater than 30 days.

The Program Administrator will attempt to notify the Customer when disconnection has been identified.

  1. By enrolling in the Program, the Customer will also receive helpful energy-saving recommendations to realize additional energy savings, delivered at several different times each calendar year they remain enrolled. Dominion will use the email address supplied at enrollment to send energy-savings insights in the behavioral savings reports, and the Customer may opt out of receiving the reports without opting out of the remote optimization setback portion of the Program.
  2. Program participation will continue until:
    • the Customer discontinues receiving Electricity Supply Service and Electric Delivery Service from Dominion;
    • the Customer changes accounts (note: it is the responsibility of the Customer to reenroll to continue Program participation under the new account);
    • the customer requests to withdraw from the Program;
    • the Customer’s participation is deactivated because of an uncured lapse in connectivity described in paragraph 6 above; or
    • the customer abuses the privileges of participation in the Program, as determined in the sole discretion of the Program Administrator or Dominion.
  3. Dominion and/or its designees including Program Administrators and evaluation contractors reserve the right to review installations to verify completion and measure energy savings to ensure compliance with all Program requirements. Such reviews will be made at a time convenient to the applicant. Denial of such verification or misrepresentation of installation location or measure eligibility may result in forfeiture of the rebate.
  4. Participation must be completed in accordance with all laws, codes and other requirements applicable under federal, state and local authority.
  5. The Customer understands that it may be contacted by Dominion via survey or questionnaire to provide feedback regarding Customer satisfaction with the program.

Payment

  1. Payments will be made based on Customer participation each participation year.
  2. Payments for the preceding year’s participation will be issued in the form of a rebate check payment or bill credit at the conclusion of the 12-month anniversary of the Customer’s Program participation year. If the customer has a lapse in enrollment greater than 30 days, then their anniversary date is calculated using the latest enrollment date.
  3. Payments will be credited to the Customer’s account holder on record with Dominion.
  4. To receive payment, a customer must be participating in the Program for a 12-month period in a given participation year. A customer requesting to withdraw from the Program before the end of the participation year will forfeit payment for that year in which the Customer partially participated.
  5. One incentive payment will be made per account, regardless of quantity of Smart Thermostats enrolled in the Program at the residence.
  6. Customer is urged to seek appropriate consultation concerning any tax liabilities that could be associated with the receipt of rebates and any other Program benefits.

Termination & Withdrawal

  1. Dominion and/or the Program Administrator may unilaterally remove any Customer from the Program based upon level of participation (such as being offline for prolonged periods or for lack of participation) or for any other reason without notice, liability or penalty. A notice will be sent to Customer after they have been removed from the Program.
  2. Customer is not required to participate in the Program and may withdraw from the Program at any time by sending its withdrawal request to the Program Administrator via email at energysupport@resideo.com.
