Naperville Electric Utility Now Offering Smart Thermostat Rebate Program

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — The City of Naperville’s Electric Utility is now offering a one-time $50 rebate for residential utility customers when they buy and install any smart thermostat, beginning with units purchased on or after May 1, 2018.

Residential customers can now download the rebate application from the City’s website at After installing the thermostat, send your rebate application and documentation to Bernie Saban by email at or mail it to Naperville Electric Utility, c/o Bernie Saban, 1392 Aurora Ave., Suite 100, Naperville, IL 60540.

Once information has been verified and the rebate application fully processed, customers will receive a one-time $50 credit on their utility bill within two months. Rebates will be offered until the $25,000 in funding, which is made possible through 2018 Electric Efficiency Grant Program funding from the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency (IMEA), has been fully allocated. Rebate applicants must be residential customers and the owners of their residence. There is a limit of one rebate per household.

Smart thermostats automatically and remotely control heating and cooling within a home, versus a resident manually having to adjust their temperature. Smart thermostats can even learn residents’ temperature preferences and schedules and automatically adjust heating or cooling to those preferred levels. Several brands of smart thermostats are available for purchase at a variety of retail locations or online; all makes and models will be eligible under this rebate program.
