Step 1:
Choose your thermostat and smart water heater device.1​
Step 2:

Step 3:
Schedule a free, professional installation appointment.​

Step 4:
After your devices are installed, partner with Pee Dee Electric to ensure more reliable power for your community!

How It Works

Just like roads at rush hour, the electric grid experiences moments of high traffic, or “demand.” ​

By participating in Connect to Save, you can earn up to $100 per year2 by allowing Pee Dee Electric to make minimal adjustments to the temperature of your home during periods of high demand. These small actions multiplied across thousands of homes create more reliable power for the entire cooperative membership.​

​After your new thermostat is installed, Connect to Save will coordinate with Pee Dee Electric to occasionally make small changes to your home’s temperature during periods of high electricity demand. These adjustments are limited to 3 degrees3, typically last 3 hours or less, and you can opt out when needed.​

Get a Google Nest Thermostat at No Cost*

For a limited time, Pee Dee Electric members get a Google Nest Thermostat at no cost* for participating in the new Connect to Save program. But hurry, this offer ends December 31!​
