Enter The Smart Energy Home Makeover Sweepstakes

Reliant November 8, 2010

Imagine being in control of your electricity. Imagine leaving for work in the morning, realizing you left the lights on at home and being able to turn them off remotely instead of having to turn around and drive back. Imagine being able to see—and control—what’s going on inside your house, even when you’re not there.

Now imagine this is reality and not some futuristic sci-fi thriller…because it is.

Reliant Energy is giving away two $10,000 Smart Energy home makeovers that will allow the winners to have full control of how and when they use their electricity.

“This makeover will take an average home and make it smarter and more energy savvy,” said Tom Gros, Senior Vice President, Reliant Energy. “With a home energy automation system linked to an iPad™, winners can manage their electricity use from almost anywhere. With more information and control, they will be able to make informed choices about their electricity usage even while away from home.”

The winners will receive a range of innovative tools including:

  • Home Automation – a wireless system that controls a variety of energy-related devices in the home, including a thermostat, light switches and security cameras.  The package includes equipment, installation, a one-year service agreement with a home automation provider and one year of streaming music from Rhapsody.
  • Energy Monitoring System – a way for customers to view – from a computer or iPad – how much electricity their home is using and how much it costs to run certain appliances in the home, such as the refrigerator or air conditioning and heating system, includes one-year monitoring service, installation and set up.
  • Flat Panel TV –  46” energy efficient LCD/LED television, installation included
  • iPad™ (Wi-Fi) – 16GB iPad with case that can also be used to control the home automation system remotely.

Homeowners who reside in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT)-area can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win the latest in home automation and energy-saving tools and technology.
