Consumers Energy to give 10,000 thermostats to households in need
JACKSON, Mich. – Consumers Energy has announced it will give 10,000 thermostats to income-qualified customers over the next three years.
The thermostats are part of a new initiative involving Nest and the Power Project to help those in need.
The Power Project is an initiative launched on Earth Day of this year to make 1 million thermostats available to families across the U.S.
Consumer also announced it will donate 10 percent of proceeds made from thermostat sales to those in need.
“Our commitment to world-class performance, delivering hometown service, means we’re focused on providing energy solutions for every household we serve, especially those who need it most,” said Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy’s president and chief executive officer.
The company noted that while the average household spends less than 4 percent of its budget on energy costs, lower income families can spend as much as 20 percent on their energy bills.
