NJ Natural Gas Partners With Google and EFI on Free Smart Thermostats

New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) has partnered with Google Nest and Energy Federation Inc. (EFI) to provide the Google Nest Thermostat E at no cost to NJNG’s nearly half a million residential customers*, helping households save energy and money.

This offer reinforces NJNG’s commitment to sustainability and delivering energy-efficiency solutions to help customers make energy decisions that save energy, lower energy bills and reduce carbon emissions.

“With customers spending more time at home in response to COVID-19, and warmer weather on the way, energy use and bills will be on the rise,” said Steve Westhoven, president and CEO of New Jersey Resources, parent company of NJNG. “We’re here to help our customers by empowering them with the technology and tips they need to save energy and money, and help protect the environment.”

Nest Thermostat E users save an average of up to 15% on cooling costs and up to 12% on heating costs**, according to Google. Based on typical energy usage, this translates to an estimated average savings of $131 – $145 each year. The free Nest Thermostat E offer complements NJNG’s overarching efforts to provide customers with access to programs to help manage their energy bills.

  • The Nest Thermostat E automatically programs itself and creates a schedule based on the user’s habits and preferences.
  • With voice activation capabilities, it is easier than ever to save energy and stay comfortable.
  • The Nest Leaf icon appears on the thermostat device, or app, to indicate when energy-saving temperatures are selected.

The limited-time offer is valid June 8 through July 20, 2020 for NJNG customers only on the NJNG Marketplace. Customers can visit for this free offer and discounts on other energy-efficiency products.
