*To protect the health and safety of our employees, contractors and our customers, Clark Public Utilities has temporarily suspended the limited income smart thermostat program. For further information or questions please contact the thermostat team by emailing [email protected] or by leaving a message at 360-992-3347.*
In an effort to cut energy waste and reduce customer bills, we are providing qualifying customers with an installation of a free smart thermostat and LED lights over the next 12 months on a first come, first serve basis. To let customers know they qualify, we have sent out postcards informing them of the program.
All of our conservation programs aim to reduce energy use, improve safety and comfort, and yield significant savings for years to come. All of our residential rebates & loan programs can be found here.
What does the Program Provide?
Customers will receive a Nest E Smart thermostat AND up to 10 LEDS installed in accessible sockets. The installation contractor will let you know when their first available installation appointment will be. Installation appointments may be scheduled out a few weeks depending on their availability and schedule. Installations typically take 1-2 hours and there will be up to two contractors in your home. A Clark Public Utilities Energy Counselor may also be present to complete a quality assessment. If you need an interpreter, we can arrange for one to be on the phone when you call our contractor and also at the installation appointment via video conference.
*Please note: The property owner acknowledges the previously installed thermostat and bulbs will be removed from the household and recycled by the installer. Any replacement of the new smart thermostat (except warranty replacement) and LED bulbs is the responsibility of the property owner or tenant.
The limited income smart thermostat program has been temporarily suspended to protect the health and safety of our employees, contractors and customers. The below video is a helpful guide to better understand the Nest thermostat and its functions but does include specifics about the contractor installation process which is currently on hold. For further information or questions please contact the thermostat team by emailing [email protected] or by leaving a message at 360-992-3347.
