Thermostat Challenge

Thermostat Challenge

Winter or summer, adjusting the thermostat saves energy.

Join us in setting your thermostat up or down (depending on the season) by at least two degrees to reduce your energy consumption—and adjust it even more at night and when no one is home.


For each degree a thermostat is adjusted up or down for the season—in a setback period at least eight hours long—a family, school, or business can save 1% of the cost. More important, this action stops wasting energy and reduces greenhouse gas pollution.
