Smart Thermostats Frequently Asked Questions
Smart thermostats are wi-fi enabled and have occupancy sensing. In other words, they can be controlled from your smart phone and will automatically adjust the temperature when no one is in the building. This makes a smart thermostat more efficient.
If you purchased one of the thermostats listed on the Prequalified Smart Thermostat List during the program year (December 1, 2020-November 30, 2021), you can still apply for a rebate. You will need to submit the Smart Thermostat form, rebate application, receipt and photo of the installed smart thermostat to Santee Cooper.
Only thermostats on the Prequalifying Smart Thermostat List qualify for a rebate.
Santee Cooper can only offer rebates for thermostats that have documented energy savings in national databases. We will continue to expand the Prequalifying Smart Thermostat List as more thermostats are introduced to the market and their energy savings potential is determined.
During the cooler months, set your thermostat at 68° or lower. During the warmer months, set your temperature to 78° or higher.
