Atlantic City, NJ, May 8, 2019 – South Jersey Gas customers can now receive $150 instant savings on a smart thermostat when they purchase from the utility’s new online marketplace. The offer equates to a $0 smart thermostat before shipping on select models. 

South Jersey Gas Marketplace launched this month with instant rebates on energy-efficient smart thermostats, LED lighting, advanced power strips and water-saving products that can help customers save energy and money all year long. 

With just a few clicks, South Jersey Gas customers can save up to $150 on a smart thermostat such as the Nest Learning Thermostat and purchase LED light bulbs starting at 50% off per bulb. No paperwork, no wait, no hassle - just a simple validation process that determines rebate eligibility at the same time a customer enters their payment and shipping information. 

The online store with instant, point-of-purchase rebate validation is the first step in a series of new features designed to make it easy for South Jersey Gas customers to take full advantage of the benefits of energy-efficiency and smart home technology to control energy use and costs in their home.
