Did you know that many of Balboa Park’s museums and institutions rely on programmable thermostats and building automation systems to maintain climate-controlled storage and exhibition spaces? Saving energy while saving money enables our cultural institutions to reduce their carbon footprint while protecting historical artifacts for future generations to enjoy.

If you’ve been considering programming and automating your home’s climate controls, here’s an added incentive from San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E): purchase an approved smart thermostat and enroll in SDG&E’s Reduce Your UseSM Rewards and you’ll receive a $50 Visa® gift card. Plus, you can earn another $25 for each summer you participate in the Rewards program. Visit sdge.com/byot to find out if you qualify.

Not sure where to start? You can find and purchase a selection of eligible smart thermostats by visiting the SDG&E Marketplace. With this online tool, customers can compare prices, estimated energy savings, product features, and popularity ratings across thousands of home appliances and electronics. Some of the products qualify for online rebates, and SDG&E Marketplace makes the rebate application process easier than ever. For more information, visit marketplace.sdge.com.
