Infinite Energy to Offer Nest Learning Thermostats to Natural Gas Consumers

September 10, 2013

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — This fall, Infinite Energy will offer a new perk with one of its Georgia natural gas plans: a Nest Learning Thermostat(TM).

New and current Infinite Energy customers will receive the Nest thermostat at no cost upon enrolling in a 24-month fixed rate plan. The Nest, which retails for $249, is self-programming. It learns a homeowner’s schedule and automatically adjusts itself, reducing A/C runtimes by 25 percent and heating runtimes by 15 percent.

“We want our customers to enjoy lower energy bills with us,” said Jason Dolder, Director of Sales & Marketing at Infinite Energy. “A big part of that can be accomplished through our rates, but we want to give our customers creative solutions to reduce their energy use across the board. Nest thermostats will help them do that.”

Infinite Energy is the first and only energy supplier to offer the Nest in Georgia. Benefits of the plan include:

    --  Price stability: Infinite Energy's 24-month fixed rate lets consumers
        easily budget their natural gas costs.
    --  Convenience: Nest allows users to set the temperature from a smartphone,
        tablet or laptop.
    --  Efficiency: The Nest thermostat's Auto-Away(TM) feature uses sensors to
        detect when no one is home so it can adjust the thermostat to a
        pre-selected energy-efficient temperature.

“Heating and cooling accounts for approximately half the monthly energy bill, and the Nest Learning Thermostat offers an easy way to cut down on energy consumption without sacrificing comfort,” said Scott McGaraghan, Director of Business Development at Nest. “Collectively, Nest customers have already saved more than one billion kWh. With Infinite Energy working to get Nest thermostats into more people’s hands, we can save even more.”
