With the COVID-19 pandemic causing many residential customers’ energy usage to increase substantially, Consumers Energy looked for a way to help their customers save energy and money while also reaching their own clean energy goals. The Michigan utility’s Clean Energy Plan aims to eliminate coal and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040 – not an easy task!
Consumers Energy quickly thought creatively, partnering with Uplight and Google to provide free Google Nest smart thermostats to up to 100,000 households with demand response pre-enrollment. Demand response pre-enrollment results in 5X enrollments compared to bring-your-own-device programs, enabling more Michigan households to save.
