Over the last decade we’ve learned a lot from Nest thermostat customers and our energy industry partners. We are launching Nest Renew as an early preview to get feedback from both groups so we can ensure high quality and continue to iterate on core technology and features. Given the urgency of climate change, every action counts, so we wanted to get started now and begin collecting feedback.
Basic: Customers with compatible Nest thermostats can join for free,1 and Nest Renew helps you understand when energy coming into your home is cleaner, and when it’s not so clean, so you can decide to use electricity at a more informed time.4 Renew Basic also includes Energy Shift3, a feature that works with your compatible Nest thermostat to help you automatically prioritize usage of cleaner4 or less expensive7 energy. You’ll also get access to monthly challenges, energy saving tips, and the ability to extend your positive impact by directing Nest Renew funds to nonprofit partners through the Energy Impact Program.
Premium: Nest Renew Premium costs $10 a month.2 You’ll get access to everything included with Renew Basic, plus additional features, such as Clean Energy Match, that can match the fossil fuel electricity used in your home with enough clean energy to cover the average U.S. household.

No, Nest Renew does not replace your utility company. It is a service from Google that complements the electric service you receive from your local utility. Nest Renew does not require you to switch utility providers or make changes to your electric or gas service.
If your utility company offers a clean energy option, you should consider signing up for it. Only your utility company can provide you with the electricity that powers your home. Some of them are even working to make sure that the clean energy they provide customers is produced within their region. Nest Renew is complementary and not an alternative to clean energy options from your utility.
Customers can track their progress and impact in Nest Renew’s new monthly impact emails or check any time at nestrenew.google.com, which can be easily accessed from settings in either the Nest or Google Home apps.
