HOUSTON — Through its partnership with Nest, Direct Energy, one of North America’s largest energy and energy-related services providers, announced that it will be extending its Comfort & Control Plan to natural gas customers in Illinois, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio. The Comfort & Control Plan includes a Nest Learning Thermostat™ at no cost. In addition, starting in early September, natural gas customers in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as electric customers in Connecticut, Maryland, and Washington, District of Columbia, will be eligible for the plan from Direct Energy. The offer provides customers a combination of a low, fixed energy rate combined with the potential HVAC energy savings from a Nest Learning Thermostat.

As a Nest partner, Direct Energy said it is committed to bringing the Nest Learning Thermostat to key competitive markets in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Canada.

“Direct Energy is proud to partner with Nest and looks forward to bringing more new offers to customers across the Direct Energy footprint,” said Robbie Wright, vice president, digital and innovation, for Direct Energy. “Providing innovation and choice while engaging our customers empowers them with greater convenience and control to manage their energy use and realize energy savings with the Nest Learning Thermostat.”

In July, Direct Energy launched its Comfort and Control Plan — which includes a Nest Learning Thermostat with a low fixed rate over a 24- or 36-month period — providing stability in price for customers with the energy-saving benefits of the smart thermostat.
