Electric Ireland has announced a partnership with Nest to offer the Nest Learning Thermostat to their customers throughout Ireland.
In a deal announced at the Web Summit in Dublin, new Electric Ireland customers who sign up to a 2-year electricity price plan can receive the Nest Learning Thermostat and installation at no cost. Existing customers can get a Nest Thermostat and installation for €99, a claimed saving of €275.
The Nest Thermostat is a device that 'learns' your home heating habits to produce a 'personalised schedule' that is refined over time. It also has built-in sensors to detect when noboby is hom and can be controlled from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
”With space heating responsible for over 40% of the average household energy bill according to Eurostat, the equivalent to €876 per year, this new offer from Electric Ireland constitutes a fantastic deal to Irish consumers," said Lionel Paillet, General Manager of Europe for Nest Labs.
"We look forward to helping households across Ireland take control of their energy consumption and make their homes more comfortable this winter.”
