Fort Collins Utilities customers
with Honeywell smart thermostats
get paid to save energy.

Welcome Honeywell Smart Thermostat Owners!

If you receive electricity from Fort Collins Utilities, own a single-family home with a Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled smart thermostat and control your central air conditioner or heat pump, you can receive $75 for enrolling in the Fort Collins Bring Your Own Thermostat (BYOT) program, plus $25 every year you participate.

How It Works

Fort Collins Utilities wants to lower demand during high-demand hours – especially during those summer days when everyone cranks up their AC at the same time. During those peak hours – generally between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on non-holiday weekdays from May 1 to Sept. 30 – Fort Collins Utilities may need to call for conservation events, which usually last two to four hours. (There can be no more than one event a day and no more than 20 events each summer.)

During a conservation event, your Honeywell thermostat will receive a radio signal to cycle your AC more often so that your compressor operates half the time it normally would. Your fan remains on throughout, keeping you cool.

Why Enroll?

Honeywell smart thermostats help lower costs and can help conserve when energy savings are most needed.

Every kilowatt of electricity saved during a conservation event helps:

  • Keep our electricity rates lower over the long term.
  • Reduce the amount of carbon emissions and other pollutants associated with peak power generation.
  • Contribute to our planning for future electricity resources.
