SoCalGas® Smart Therm Program

Enrollment for this program is currently closed. Please check back on December 1, 2019.

About the SoCalGas® Smart Therm Program

During the winter season, customers with qualifying smart thermostats will be eligible to participate in the SoCalGas® Smart Therm Program. We are rewarding eligible customers for supporting the conservation of natural gas when demand is high.

If you own a qualifying smart thermostat, you will receive an email from your thermostat manufacturer. After electing to enroll and verifying your SoCalGas account number, you will be entered into the program. When a Smart Therm Event is called, your thermostat(s) will be controlled remotely to help conserve natural gas.

You will earn $50 just for enrolling!

As an enrolled customer, you agree to allow adjustments to your thermostat during the course of a four hour “Smart Therm Event”. If you stay enrolled throughout the full length of a winter season program, you can earn an additional $25 each winter. 

What is a SoCalGas Smart Therm Event?

Our Smart Therm Event is a voluntary call for consumers to conserve natural gas on certain days when demand is high. Here are important things to remember as a participant:

  • You will earn $50 for enrolling in the program. Customers will earn $25 for every winter season they remain enrolled. 
  • If a Smart Therm Event is activated, you can expect your thermostat to be adjusted up to four degrees for four hours.
  • Events can occur between 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. or 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Events can only be called on weekdays; Federal holidays are excluded.
  • You can override your smart thermostat during an event and there is no penalty for not participating in a program event.
