A smart thermostat provides an easy and convenient way to manage your home's heating and cooling comfort and costs. And now Xcel Energy has made it easier than ever for you to experience a convenient energy-saving lifestyle with long-term benefits. As an added bonus, you'll earn $25 every year you participate in the program.
Want a smart thermostat? We've got you covered! Xcel Energy is offering up to $125 of incentives on select models purchased from the Xcel Energy Store. You can also have an ecobee3 Lite installed at no cost. See details in the Getting Started section below.
Already own a smart thermostat? Don't worry, you can still participate and earn incentives! Complete your enrollment online by registering your installed thermostat and receive $75.
By participating in AC Rewards, you agree to allow Xcel Energy to make adjustments to your thermostat during blistering-hot summer days. When the demand for electricity is highest, you'll help us manage these peaks and ease the strain on the electrical grid by cutting back just a little on the time your central air works to cool your home. You'll have the ability to opt out of these events at any time, either from your thermostat, mobile device or web app, and return to your normal settings.
Convenience, control and savings.

Please note AC Rewards cannot be combined with Saver's Switch. If you enroll in AC Rewards your participation in Saver's Switch will be discontinued.
All customers will need their Xcel Energy account number and either the email address or phone number associated with your Xcel Energy to enroll in AC Rewards. You can find your account number on your bill or using the Xcel Energy mobile app.

Under the AC Rewards program we will make small adjustments to your thermostat during periods of high electricity demand, also known as "control events". Based on your preference, you will receive emails notifying you of control events. These events may occur anytime during the cooling season. If you experience discomfort, you have the option to opt-out of the AC Rewards events using your thermostat or smart phone application at any time and return to your normal thermostat settings. On extremely rare occasions system emergencies may cause us to issue control events that cannot be overridden.
To qualify, you must be a Minnesota Xcel Energy residential electric customer with central air conditioning and have, or install, an eligible smart thermostat listed above. You will need an internet-connected wireless network (Wi-Fi). Customers who live in apartments or condominiums are not eligible.
Customers cannot participate in both Saver's Switch and AC Rewards. Saver's Switch participants who choose to switch to AC rewards will no longer receive bill credits for Saver's Switch and the Saver's Switch device will be deactivated. Other restrictions may apply.
