TXU Customers Have Option to Control Thermostat by Internet

by Michelle on June 20, 2011

There are many technological advancements being seen these days in the electricity industry including such technology as the smart grids being operated in both Texas and California.  Now TXU customers will have the option of choosing to use a different kind of smart technology.  A number of electricity providers are actually offering similar services which will allow customers’ thermostats to be controlled based on the temperature as well as peak times for electricity usage.  TXU is one of the many electricity companies serving Texas energy consumers and not the only Texas electricity company to initiate the use of smart technology.  Other companies are installing smart meters for their customers but this program, although with its similarities, is still quite a bit different that the smart grid technologies we have been seeing.  TXU customers, as well as customers of other Texas energy companies, should compare all the rates available to them in order to save as much money as possible on energy costs.  Call 1-800-971-4020 and a Texas Electricity Comparison representative can help you to make the comparison of local energy companies.

  • The technology now being used by TXU Energy is the iThermostat which allows customers to control the temperature of their home remotely online.
  • Customers who sign up for the iThermostat program will receive a free internet controllable thermostat made by White-Rodgers.
  • According to TXU there are already 100,000 participants ready to enroll in the program by 2012.
  • Fifteen minutes cycle times per every four hours are allowed with the program in order to keep temperatures from rising more than a couple of degrees.

While some energy consumers are opposed to smart grid technologies there are many that are signing on for the new programs such as the one being offered by TXU.

Consumers interested in smart technology should compare electricity companies by contacting Texas Electricity Comparison.

Texas Electricity Comparison offers two simple ways to compare electricity rates, online and over the phone by speaking to a comparison expert.  You choose how to compare and you choose how to save.
