The Hilo smart home, an investment that quickly pays off

 4 minutes reading

By adopting the Hilo smart home and taking on the challenges, you’re participating in a collective effort to reduce energy use. You’ll also earn cash rewards and lower your electricity bill. Now there’s an investment that pays off! You may even recoup your initial outlay within two winters or sooner. Here’s how.

Money in your pockets

The Hilo smart home gives you money back two ways. The first is through connected devices, which can be controlled remotely. They help you save energy year-round. That can mean savings of up to 15% on your electricity bill! The second is by taking on Hilo challenges, which give you cash rewards. Depending on your participation mode, the characteristics of your home and your energy consumption habits, you could receive up to $166 on average per winter. At this rate, your investment could quickly pay off!

Here are a few examples.
