1Connect to Save: Two Ways to Enroll a Smart Thermostat for Savings Enroll your existing Google Nest, Ecobee, Honeywell or Amazon smart thermostat and receive an initial $50 bill credit and a $4 bill credit each month. Enrolling allows BEMC to temporarily adjust your thermostat by a few degrees, a few times a month, during times of peak demand. These small actions multiplied across thousands of homes create big savings on our wholesale power costs. As an at-cost provider of electricity, saving on our wholesale power costs benefits all members by keeping costs low for the entire electric cooperative. OR If you don’t have a smart thermostat, we can provide one at a heavily discounted price, and have it professionally installed for free. You’ll also earn a $50 incentive each year. Enrolling your new smart thermostat allows BEMC to temporarily adjust your thermostat by a few degrees, a few times a month, during times of peak demand, with the same benefit to the membership as previously mentioned.

2Home Solar: Free Consultation and Assessment for Best Outcomes Rooftop solar is a big investment, and some solar companies might not take the time to talk to you about the pitch, direction, and condition of your roof, as well as other factors affecting how solar panels would work with your home. We can help you assess your individual situation to see if it’s a good fit for you. If it is, we can help make sure you get the solution that is right for you. By looking at your past energy usage over time, in detail, we can help you determine the size of the system that you need. You can provide this information to the solar company, making sure that your system isn’t oversized or undersized. It can be easy to be oversold, and we’re here to help you make smart decisions.
