How it works

The Rush Hour Rewards program helps SRP reduce peak demand and also aids in maintaining grid reliability. Rush hours typically occur when demand for energy is at its highest, like hot summer afternoons, but may be called under other circumstances to reduce strain on our grid. The Nest Thermostat can help you use less energy during rush hour by automatically turning the temperature up three degrees during peak times. These are rush hour events.

What you can expect:

  • Prior to a rush hour event, you’ll be notified. Check your Nest account messages, and enable push notifications in the app settings, so you don’t miss out on communications.
  • A gold gear will appear on your thermostat during an event.
  • Nest may tweak temperatures before and during a rush hour event to balance comfort and energy savings.


  • You're in control and can opt out of a rush hour event and change the temperature anytime.
  • During an event, look at the temperature in your home, not the temperature setting on the thermostat.
  • There could be a maximum of 15 rush hour events each summer. Rush hour events occur between noon and 9 p.m. on weekdays only (holidays excluded).


  • You must be an SRP residential customer.
  • Your cooling system and connected thermostat must be at the location of your SRP residential account.
  • Your Wi-Fi connection and thermostat(s) have to be connected to your Nest account.
  • You must have a Nest account to enroll in SRP's program. If you do not have one, you will need to establish one prior to enrollment.
  • You will need to provide your SRP bill account number to complete the application.
  • For additional program information, call (602) 236-2951.

Note: SRP M-Power customers must make a minimum energy purchase of $1 for credit to apply.
