As a savvy consumer, you’re always looking for ways to better manage energy usage in your home in hopes of possibly lowering your electricity bill. And it would be helpful if your electricity company could help you accomplish this with greater efficiency and convenience. Well, with the introduction of the Direct Energy 5-Year Comfort & Control Dual Fuel Plan, Alberta residents will have the ability to monitor their home thermostat anywhere and at any time while enjoying protection from unpredictable changes in energy prices!

Alberta residents who enroll in the Comfort & Control Plan will receive:

  • A fixed electricity rate of 8.59 cents per kWh for your 5-year contract term*
  • A variable natural gas rate with a winter cap set at $5.99/GJ
  • The Nest Learning Thermostat™ at no additional cost – a $249 value
  • A smartphone app that lets you control the temperature settings for your Alberta home wherever you are and whenever you want

With The Nest Learning Thermostat, you can enter personalized temperature information based upon your daily lifestyle. Within just a few days of learning your energy usage habits, the Nest develops ideal temperature settings for your family and then lets you know when you’ve maximized your energy efficiency with the appearance of The Nest Leaf.

And thanks to motion sensor technology, The Nest knows when you’re home or away and adjusts the temperature accordingly to improve the energy efficiency of your home. And with your e-mail address, you can receive a customized Energy Report each month packed with information like usage habits, weather reports, and system temperature changes – all designed to help you save energy.

Think about it – you’ll pay a guaranteed fixed electric rate for the 5 years of your contract, enjoy a winter cap for your natural gas rate, receive The Nest Learning Thermostat to help you save energy, and control your thermostat at your convenience with a smartphone app. That’s the beauty of the Comfort & Control Plan from Direct Energy!
