Peak Time Savings Program

 An easy way to make your smart thermostat even smarter

The Peak Time Savings program works to save you money and energy by syncing with your home’s smart thermostat to make slight, temporary adjustments during demand response events. These events are periods of high electricity demand when energy prices are higher than usual. By anticipating these demand response events and pre-cooling your home accordingly, Peak Time Savings not only helps reduce energy usage and costs but ensures that you stay comfortable throughout the event. Plus, you have the option of opting out of events. Your thermostat is $0 when you include the Peak Time Savings Enrollment Bonus.1

1. Opting out of too many events may lead to removal from the program.

2. The instant rebate and the manufacturer's promotion discount do not apply if you already own your smart thermostat. However, you can still qualify for the Peak Time Savings enrollment bonus and annual appreciation bonus.

To participate in the program, you must be an Ameren Missouri electric service customer and have a smart thermostat installed in your home. Your smart thermostat can be one you already own or one that you purchase from one of the following manufacturers.
There will be a slightly different customer experience with the Peak Time Savings program depending upon which thermostat you use.

How it Works

1. Purchase a qualifying smart thermostat and install it in your home.
2. Complete your enrollment by selecting “Complete your enrollment” underneath the manufacturer of your smart thermostat above.
3. The Peak Time Savings program syncs with your smart thermostat to understand what keeps you comfortable and how your home uses energy.
4. On very hot days when demand for energy peaks, the program may schedule a Peak Time Savings event.
5. Prior to the event, your smart thermostat automatically pre-cools your home to ensure your comfort, then lowers your energy usage slightly during the peak 
 period to conserve energy.
6. Your smart thermostat adjusts back to your preprogrammed cooling settings once the event is completed.

Events last no longer than a few hours and only occur Monday through Friday during the months of May through September. The best part? Once you enroll, you don’t have to do a thing. Your smart thermostat does all the work!
